This anthology reflects the diversity of voices it contains: the poems are arranged thematically and the themes reflect the different experiences of war not just for the soldiers but for those left behind. This is what makes this volume more accessible and satisfying than others. In addition to the established canon there are poems rarely anthologised and a selection of soldiers' songs to reflect the voices of the soldiers themselves.

The literature of World War I captures the mayhem and spectacle of its time, when an entire generation found itself in the mouth of a juggernaut. Facing chaos, some writers also developed a literature of hope, courage, devotion, and humanity. Whether despairing or hopeful, the writing on the Great War is powerfully evocative. The Great War Reader gives many nearly forgotten writers a new audience at a most appropriate time. Memoirists, short story writers, novelists, poets, playwrights, and historians speak here again of a time that witnessed the death of the pastoral tones of the nineteenth century and the birth of the modern world. The selections here are divided into five categories: historical writings, some objectifying, some personalizing the war; letters and diaries that reflect intimate reactions to artillery barrages and quieter, saner moments; memoirs; poetry; and a range of fiction from the romantic to the bitterly cynical. Some of the selections include: -- Testament of Youth, Vera Brittain -- Undertones of War, Edmund Blunden -- The Storm of Steel, Ernst Junger -- The Diary of an Officer, Arthur Graeme West -- and poetry by Isaac Rosenberg, Georg Trakl, and Giuseppe Ungaretti Editor James R. Hannah also includes author biographies and articles from the trench newspaper, The Wipers Times, The Great War Reader is a testament to men's and women's ability to produce art of lasting value even under extreme duress.

In time of war and national calamity, numbers of people seldom seen in church will suddenly turn to religion for consolation and inspiration - and perhaps more surprisingly, just as many turn to poetry. Never was the phenomenon more clearly marked than in that war we still know as The Great War. Hundreds of those now referred to as 'the war poets' saw their work in print between 1914 and 1918; others - including some of the best - were not published until afterwards. That rather unsatisfactory label includes very different kinds of writers - Owen and Sassoon, with their poems of passionate indignation, are a far cry from Edward Thomas's bleak and oblique rural ruminations. But 'true Poets', as Wilfred Owen wrote, 'must be truthful', and Jon Stallworthy has gathered here some of the most moving and unforgettable poetry born out of the horror of the trenches. He has written brief but telling accounts of the lives and work of twelve of the most powerful of those poets who experienced and wrote about the worst war the world has ever known. Featured are: Rupert Brooke; Julian Grenfell; Charles Hamilton Sorley; Francis Ledwidge; Siegfried Sassoon; Robert Graves; Wilfred Owen; Edmund Blunden; Edward Thomas; Ivor Gurney; Isaac Rosenberg; David Jones. Illustrated with haunting images, photos and paintings.

The Myth of War in British and Polish Poetry 1939 1945

In recent decades, there has been a marked tendency to look at war literature from a perspective that reaches beyond the experiences of particular nations. Characteristically, though poetry and prose from Poland, Hungary and former Czechoslovakia are included in multi-national anthologies, the war literatures of Eastern Europe seem to have been ignored in critical studies. The Myth of War in British and Polish Poetry. 1939-1945 aims to fill in this critical vacuum. This study concentrates on the processes through which British and Polish poetry contributed to the shaping of myths of war, each offering creative interpretations of historical facts and developments. Both poetic traditions are analysed in the context of their national literary heritage and historical background in order to explain the discrepancies characterising these imaginative versions of war. Yet, the ultimate objective is to discover spheres of convergence within a network of differences. This comparative analysis of British and Polish war poetry paves the way for discussions about the relationships between national and individual experiences of history, inviting consideration of how seemingly unsurpassable borders can be crossed.

The tragic slaughter of the trenches is imprinted on modern memory; but it is more difficult to grasp the wider extent and significance of World War I. This book gives a chronological account of the campaigns on the Western and Eastern Fronts and then moves on to investigate areas that many studies ignore - war poets, the diplomacy of war-aims and peace moves, logistics, and the experience of war.
