In this moving anthology, the Poet Laureate Andrew Motion guides us through the horror and the pity of the Great War, from the trenches of the Western Front to reflections from our own age. With a generous selection of our best-loved war poets, First World War Poems also returns lesser known pieces to the light, and extends the selection right through to the present day - so that poems produced by the war give way historically to poems about the war. This mesmerizing book reminds us how the poetry of that time has, more than any art form, come to stand testament to the grief and outrage occasioned by World War I.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Motion's achievement with this new anthology is in including poems written by women - Eleanor Farjeon, Helen Mackay, Rose Macaulay - and by poets of later generations who are responding to the lingering afterglow of that great conflagration.' New Statesman; 'A slim but beautifully produced volume of some of the most haunting, compelling and memorable poetry of its era.' The Times"
