Poetry from the First World War thematically arranged by time.
Unrivalled for its range and intensity, the poetry of the First World War continues to have a powerful effect on readers. This anthology reflects the diverse experiences of those who lived through the war - bringing together the words of poets, soldiers and civilians affected by the conflict. Including famous verses from Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen; pieces by less well-known writers such as Gilbert Frankau and Osbert Sitwell; works by women describing the emotions of those at home; and the anonymous lyrics of soldiers' songs, The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry offers a blend of voices that is both unique and profoundly moving.
This collection has been arranged thematically, moving through the war's different stages from conscription through to its aftermath, to offer the reader a variety of perspectives on the same common experiences.
NOTE: First published as 'In Flanders Fields: Poetry of the First World War' in 2004.
