It Is Easy To Be Dead, Paperback / softback Book


It Is Easy To Be Dead tells the story of war poet Charles Sorley's brief life through his work and music and songs from some of the greatest composers of the period.

Born in Aberdeen, Sorley was studying in Germany when the First World War broke out and was briefly imprisoned as an enemy alien.

He was one of the first to join the army in 1914. Killed in action a year later at the age of 20, his poems are among the most ambivalent, profound and moving war poetry ever written.
