Overview

Thus begins Robert Graves' classic 1929 autobiography with its searing account of life in the trenches of the First World War; and yet this opening passage, together with much significant material, has been unavailable since 1957, when a middle-aged Graves totally revised his text,robbing it of the painfully raw edge that had helped to make it an international bestseller. By 1957 major changes in his private life had taken place. Graves was no longer living with Laura Riding, under whose influence and in whose honor the original had been written. By cutting outall references to Riding, by deleting passages which revealed the mental strains under which hehad labored, and by meticulously editing the entire text, Graves destroyed most of what he hadmade so powerful but also removed from it the only context in which it could be fully understood. We are pleased to offer the original 1929 edition on the occasion of Graves 100th anniversary, edited and annotated by Robert Graves's nephew and biographer, whose lucid introduction greatly enhances its value.
Richard Perceval Graves lives in Shrewsbury, Britain, and has published Robert Graves: TheAssault Heroic 1895-1926 (1986). His most recent publication is Richard Hughes (1994) another book on his uncle, Robert Graves and the White Goddess, is scheduled for 1995.

    Beware the Versions!

    .

    See ISBN 9781571810229 for the excellent original text!
    Despite the annotation, ISBN 9780385093309 is his mediocre rewritten version where he seems to have forgotten Laura Riding, ya know?

    An Interesting Perspective

    War is brutal and unforgiving, and Graves emphasizes the shock and stark contrast between what he and his comrades believed the war would be like and how WWI actually turned out to be... a trench riddled mess of death and destruction. Graves illustrates his own personal war experiences with fervor and tact, I loved the book.

    ISBN 9781571810229 is the excellent original text!
    ISBN 9780385093309 is the mediocre rewrite from over a quarter century later, where he seems to have forgotten Laura Riding.

    A Staggeringly detailed view of a dreaful war.

    Robert Graves writes down the first part of his life in this book, from his days in Britain's public school system through the trenches of the First World War and through the aftermath to Egypt. The focal point of the book is his time in the trenches, where he sees hundreds of men dying for pitiful gains, this cynical look at the war describes the means the soldiers and officers used to survive the emotional stress they encountered in the trenches.
