Poets of the First World War by Nicola Barber, Patrick Lee-Browne


Poets of the First World War by Nicola Barber, Patrick Lee-Browne

Poets of the First World War examines the experiences of the soldiers who found artistic expression in their poetry for the horrors of warfare, and looks at the historical, political and social background which shaped the poetry of the war. The book looks in detail at five major war poets: Ivor Gurney, Wilfred Owen, Isaac Rosenberg, Siegfried Sassoon and Edward Thomas. A lively and authoritative text, supported by carefully chosen pictorial and literary evidence, makes this book the ideal companion for young students of these influential poets.
