Summary
Contains the poems arranged thematically and the themes reflect the different experiences of war not just for the soldiers but for those left behind. This volume also offers a selection of soldiers' songs to reflect the voices of the soldiers themselves.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Unrivaled in its range and intensity, the poetry of World War I continues to have a powerful effect on readers. This newly edited anthology reflects the diverse experiences of those who lived through the war, bringing together the words of poets, soldiers, and civilians affected by the conflict. Here are famous verses by Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon, and Wilfred Owen; poetry by women writing from the home front; and the anonymous lyrics of soldiers' songs. Arranged thematically, the selections take the reader through the war's stages, from conscription to its aftermath, and offer a blend of voices that is both unique and profoundly moving.
