Inhaltsangabe: The lives, deaths, poetry, diaries and extracts from letters of sixty-six soldier-poets are brought together in this limited edition of Anne Powell?s unique anthology; a fitting commemoration for the centenary of the First World War. These poems are not simply the works of well-known names such as Wilfred Owen ? though they are represented ? they have been painstakingly collected from a multitude of sources, and the relative obscurity of some of the voices makes the message all the more moving. Moreover, all but five of these soldiers lie within forty-five miles of Arras. Their deaths are described here in chronological order, with an account of each man?s last battle. This in itself provides a revealing gradual change in the poetry from early naïve patriotism to despair about the human race and the bitterness of ?Dulce et Decorum Est?.
Inhaltsangabe: Arranged by dates of death, this anthology gives the short life-and-death stories of 66 British poets killed in northern France and Belgium, including an account of the battle in which each died, with extracts from their poems, letters and diaries.
