Rupert Brooke
An aura of glamour surrounded Rupert Brooke. He was handsome and energetic, well educated, kept illustrious company, and died young. He was educated at Rugby, where his father was a housemaster, and at Kings College, Cambridge, where he studied early British drama and was head of the Fabian Society, a socialist group. His friends included Walter de la Mare, to whom he bequeathed part of his publishing royalties. At the outbreak of the First World War, Brooke enlisted in the army. He died during the Dardanelles campaign of an infection from an insect bite.
