Rupert Chawner Brooke (3 August 1887 – 23 April 1915) was a British poet and temporary Sub-Lieutenant for the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. He attended King’s College and Cambridge, joining many literary groups before leaving the college after an severe emotional crisis to rehabilitate in Germany, as well as touring in the U.S. and Canada to write travel diaries for the Westminister Gazette.
Irish poet W.B. Yeats once described him as, “the handsomest young man in England.”
Rupert Brooke loved many, men and women, and many loved him. Sadly, his bisexuality was edited out of his life by his first literary executor.
Personal note: With that intelligence, poetic soul, and boyish good looks, how could you not love him?
Also, he was basically the real-life Captain Jack Harkness of his time.
