Product description

Review

[It] will provide the best critical introduction to [the war poets'] body of work as its authority and accuracy supplants previous anthologies. (Agenda)

extraordinary in scope ... an anthology to keep and treasure. Strongly Recommended for any secondary school or college library. (Martin Axford, The School Librarian)

Of all the (many) books I've read over the years about the war poets and the poetry of war, I think this one comes the closest to capturing the breadth and depth of that extraordinary burst of creative engendered by The War to End All Wars. (Moira Briggs, Vulpes Libris)

Kendall's judicious selections, and his concise and useful introductions to each of the chosen poets, suggest that his anthology will become a standard work. (Sean O'Brien, Times Literary Supplement)

Oxford World's Classics' beautifully produced Poetry of the First World War is one of the most important and far-reaching anthologies to have been published in this, World War One's centenary year. (Kirsty Hewitt, Book Hugger)

a thought provoking and moving collection (Sallie Eden, Roseland Online)
