War Poetry is a major new anthology of poetry combined with substantial introductory material.
Demonstrating the full range and diversity of the writing which came out of both world wars, War Poetry includes selections from established and lesser-known poets. Among them are:
* Wilfred Owen
* HD
* Isaac Rosenberg
* Ivor Gurney
* Alun Lewis
* Hamish Henderson
* Sorley Maclean
* David Jones
* Herbert Read
The anthology also includes prose extracts from, among others:
* Virginia Woolf
* Bertrand Russell
* Robert Graves
* Edgell Rickword
* Stephen Spender
Featherstone's seven introductory chapters are invaluable for students and lovers of the genre, challenging the dominance of the English officer poets in the canon and providing exciting new ways of reading the poems.
War Poetry is the first collection to provide such a wide range of material and such a clear and thorough guidance to the poems. It offers a new perspective on both poetry as a genre and the place of war poetry in contemporary culture.
