Help me identity this 1910s/20s/30s British poet (from precious little information).
* Auden admired his work -- this is definite but I've lost the source and cannot be sure whether Auden ever reviewed
* He's not usually ranked among the great WWI poets like Sassoon, Owen, Brooke, et al. And I cannot find him on this Wikipedia list
. But I do remember reading a short Wikipedia entry devoted to him.
* And he did write about war -- before WWII, if
not during WWI -- and was particularly well-known for one longish poem (or short epic) that was published as a single volume. With 80% certainty I believe its title to be a definite article followed by a multisyllabic latinate (but not too complicated) abstract noun. It was something like
* First name might be David. (20% certainty here).
[Apologize for the sparse clues. As soon I read about his work I knew I was determined to track it down -- then neglected to bookmark or jot down the actual info. So this riddle is really a passionate query.]
