Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses three poems that are entitled ‘For Isaac Rosenberg’ and written by three modern poets, considering them as a representation of the obscured but lasting heritage of modern poets reading and writing about Rosenberg in ways which reveal new and refreshing points of entry into his work. It identifies the similarities and differences between the three poems and shows that Rosenberg serves as an important figure for modern Irish and British poets who are attempting to write about a troubled world left by the two World Wars and the Northern Irish troubles.

Keywords: modern poets, Isaac Rosenberg, points of entry, British poets, troubled world, World Wars, Northern Irish troubles, For Isaac Rosenberg
