Cockerels and Vultures, Poems of the First World War

The rediscovered poems of Albert-Paul Granier

Albert-Paul Granier (1888-1917) was called to fight for France in 1914. He was a talented sportsman, musician and poet who had become a solicitor before the war.
 

He recorded the impact of his experiences in his poetry. A volume of his war poems was published to acclaim about the time of his death in 1917, but then was lost to view for 90 years until a small volume of his poems, which he had called Cockerels and Vultures, was discovered in a jumble sale in France in 2008.
 

His evocative and heartfelt poems have been translated by Ian Higgins.
