The Graves of Gallipoli

'Mad Franks' in Charles Bean's own copy of the Anzac book

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


When (Hon.) Prof. Richard Stoneman, the well-known British Classical scholar and publisher, learned that I had for some time been engaged in collecting material for a major study on the Classics and the Dardanelles Campaign of 1915, he kindly sent me an article of his which he published in German translation entitled 'Die Idee Trojas. Resonanzen in England und Deutschland im zwanzigsten Jahrhundert', and which was then unknown to me. He also kindly furnished me with the English original of his article which he has also posted on the Internet. In this rich and learned study, Stoneman made a passing reference to a hauntingly beautiful poem entitled 'The Graves of Gallipoli' which will undoubtedly sound familiar to many Australian ears.
