Allmänna fakta



A great collection which includes one of my all-time favorites; Rudyard Kipling's "Tommy".

Meh. I'm sure this says something about me, but the most interesting poems in here were in the "Aberrations" section.

Good survey of the main poets of World War I, including the most famous but also some who are less well known. Written firmly from a pacifist perspective, and therefore shows some bias against those poets who saw the war in a better light than writers whose poetry is best known today (eg Julian Grenfell, whose beautiful paeon of praise to fighting, 'Into Battle' is described as 'rather horrifying' and loftily seen as the product of a culture of the past, as if that was not true of all the poets.
