Description
For some the only possible reaction of the rational mind to the insanity of war is to distill their feelings in poetry. The slaughter of a generation of young men in World War I produced some of the most achingly poignant poetry of the 20th century, collected in this album and set with photographs of the war from the archives of London's Daily Mail. Here are nearly 100 poems—scribbled in the heat of battle and in harrowed reflection; eulogies for comrades and observations from those at home—from such writers as Robert Graves, Eleanor Farjeon, Ernest Hemingway, A.E. Houseman, W.B. Yeats, e.e. cummings, Wallace Stevens, Robert Frost, Edith Wharton, and Carl Sandburg.
