7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Christian Spriet on 28 Jun. 2003
Format: Paperback
Off and on, over here in Belgium, a debate has been going on whether "art can save the world". Wilfred Owen, last century's young genius of war poetry, claimed the best thing for an artist to strive for were the twin-messages of truth and pity. This valuable anthology has finally brought together poetic statements by poets from home and abroad and from all times. The selection of poems testifies to the shattering experience of war since prehistoric times and on till the "pre-emptive strikes" which the media would have us gulp down with no suspicion of a war going on.
It is much to the credit of the compilers that indeed they have collected from "across barricades", whether ideological or religious. Books as these we cannot do without, if only to rest aware and counteract the indifference.
Furthermore, it is to the credit of FF books that they continue to enable the poets to speak their minds much the same way as Owen did before.

If only more people would read books such as this, and then ponder the pointlessness of war.
Many poems are sad and very moving, with a personal twist in some, the sentiment of which, hits home.
