There can be no area of human experience that has generated a wider range of powerful feelings than war. Jon Stallworthy’s classic anthology spans centuries of human experience of conflict, from David’s Lament for Saul and Jonathon, and Homer’s Iliad to the finest poems of the First and Second World Wars, and beyond. The roll-call of writers is huge – more than 150 celebratory ‘war-songs’ to the twentieth century’s darker poetic responses to ‘man’s inhumanity to man’. Here are Virgil and Chaucer, Spenser and Donne, Marvell and Dryden; Coleridge, Shelley, and Browning; Hugo, Whitman, and Rike, as well as the whole sweep of twentieth-century writers. Ten years on from the first edition, Jon Stallworthy has now included more poems on the wars of the twentieth century. The 42 additional poems include works by David Harsent, Anthony Hecht, Miroslav Holub, John Jarmain, Stanley Kunitz, Michael Longley, Czeslaw Milosz, Andrew Motion, and Patrick Shaw-Stewart.
