- Additional Information:
Son of the late William Parker Brooke and of Mary Rutte Brooke, of 78 Dunchurch Rd, Rugby. Rupert Brooke was a published poet as early as 1911. Suffused with patriotism he was happy to die for his country in battle. He died, not in battle but of acute blood poisoning and was buried on the Greek Island of Skyros. Brooke left his royalties to his friends, namely Lascelles Abercrombie, Wilfrid Gibson and Walter de la Mare, providing them with literary independence for the rest of their lives.
