Understand the weapon, understand the wound : selected writings of John Cornford : with some letters of Frances Cornford by John Cornford( Book )

This collection of writings from Cornford's thirteenth to his twenty-first year, when he died of wounds received in action, is a revealing autobiography, showing the sources of his political and literary commitments. In this authoritative survey of Cornford's poems, essays, and letters, Jonathan Galassi gives access to material not available elsewhere; his introduction and notes, together with two new afterwords by Jane Bernal and Richard Baxell, situate the work in its political and personal contexts. As Galassi suggests in his introduction, the republication of Cornford's writings eighty years after his death "celebrates the gem-like intensity of one young man's prodigious desire and need to change the world."
