Poetry Of World War I
In the midst of the exploding shells and flying bullets of World War I, soldiers took pen to paper to record their terrifying experiences in the form of poetry. Poignant verses tell us of the true horror of war but also remind us of the strength of human courage and virtue. This collection of poems features the most forceful and evocative of the poets of the Great War, including Rupert Brooke, Wildred Owen, Charles Sorley, and Ivor Gurney, and stands as a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made in those years.
James Shepherd is the author of seven previous novels, most recently The Book of Aron (winner of the 2016 PEN New England Award, the Sophie Brody medal for achievement in Jewish literature, the Ribalow Prize for Jewish literature, the Clark Fiction Prize, and a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award) and five story collections, including Like You’d Understand, Anyway, which was a finalist for the National Book Award and won The Story Prize.
