Rupert Brooke

1887–1915
Rupert Brooke

When Rupert Brooke died at the age of 27, he was immortalized as a charismatic poet whom W.B. Yeats called “the handsomest young man in England,” and as a symbol of what would be known as the “Lost Generation.” His patriotic poetry strengthened support for World War I, although he did not see much combat.
