The Poetry of War, 1914-89 Summary


The Poetry of War, 1914-89 by Edited by Simon Fuller

This collection of war poems is intended to bring alive the images of war through the eyes of men in combat and those left behind. The book is linked with the BBC radio programme for schools and a cassette is available which contains readings of the poems bringing new material to this theme at GCSE level. The poetry covers not only World War I, World War II, Hiroshima, the nuclear age and Vietnam, but also the more recent Falklands conflict and the troubles in Northern Ireland. There are poems from the home front, plus poems of protest concerning the nuclear threat and while not glorifying war, they recognize the sacrifices made in war. Up-to-date poems of war, many never published before, are included as are poems written from a wider perspective than just the soldier or sailor, reflecting the frequently bitter, sometimes witty, always tragic realities of war in the 20th century.
