Picspam of Rupert Brooke


I haven’t done a lot of research on Rupert Brooke (1887-1915); he’s not my favorite World War One poet by a longshot, and though he died in Greece while in the army (on the way to Gallipoli), he never saw combat. William Butler Yeats once described him as “the handsomest young man in England,” though, and I do agree he was very, very pretty.
