Voices often ignored, from the Great War,
This review is from: Voices of Silence: The Alternative Book of First World War Poetry (Hardcover)
This is a truly interesting collection of verse from WWI Britain. The points of view are kaleidoscopic, from gung-ho armchair warriors to weary trench fodder to conscientious objectors to women waiting at home. One caveat: some entries fail utterly as poetry. I think these duds are more than counterbalanced by the real gems here.
