Show Summary Details

Preview

Thirty-seven chapters, written by literary critics from across the world, describe the latest thinking about twentieth-century war poetry. The book maps both the uniqueness of each war and the continuities between poets of different wars, while the interconnections between the literatures of war and peacetime, and between combatant and civilian poets, are fully considered. The focus is on Britain and Ireland, but links are drawn with the poetry of the United States and continental Europe. The book feeds a growing interest in war poetry and offers, in toto, a definitive survey of the terrain. It is intended for a broad audience, made up of specialists and also graduates and undergraduates, and for both scholars of particular poets and for those interested in wider debates about modern poetry.

Keywords: war poetry; war literature; peacetime literature; combatant poet; civilian poet; modern poetry; Britain; Ireland; United States; continental Europe
