This chapter focuses on Webber’s collection of poetry, Glints from an Anvil: Being Lines of Song, published in 1919. The seventeen poems contained in Glints, written between 1915 and 1918, reflect the disillusionment Webber felt during this period, and the comfort he received from his Christian beliefs and certain fundamental truths of life. In reading his poems, one cannot help but feel that Webber was fascinated by death, perhaps even a premonition of his early death.
