Sass
Corbis
And still, between the shadow and the blinding flame, / The brave despair of men flings onward, ever the same / As in those doom-lit years that wait them, and have been… /And life is just the picture dancing on a screen.

Siegfried Sassoon
 
As an officer in World War I, he was wounded and lauded twice with medals for bravery. His poetry—at times violent, always honest—expressed his conviction of the brutality and waste of war in grim, forceful, realistic verse.
