The Poetry Collection is home to the World War I knapsack of poet and novelist Robert Graves. Graves served in the Royal Welch Fusiliers, an infantry regiment of the British Army, and was severely wounded at the Battle of the Somme. His memoir of the Great War was first published in 1929 as Good-Bye to All That and the manuscripts for the book are also part of the Poetry Collection’s Robert Graves Collection.
