New PDF release: A Deep Cry: Soldier-poets Killed on the Western Front

By Anne Powell

The lives, deaths, poetry, diaries and extracts from letters of sixty-six soldier-poets are introduced jointly during this restricted version of Anne Powell’s detailed anthology; a becoming commemoration for the centenary of the 1st international conflict. those poems usually are not easily the works of famous names resembling Wilfred Owen – although they're represented – they've been painstakingly accumulated from a mess of resources, and the relative obscurity of a few of the voices makes the message the entire extra relocating. in addition, all yet 5 of those squaddies lie inside of forty-five miles of Arras. Their deaths are defined right here in chronological order, with an account of every man’s final conflict. This in itself presents a revealing slow swap within the poetry from early naïve patriotism to melancholy concerning the human race and the bitterness of ‘Dulce et Decorum Est’.
