WWI was one of the of the bloodiest conflicts in modern history - and yet it produced some of the best poetry of the 20th century. Many people's first encounter with poetry is through writers like Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, and the passion and power they find in it makes a very deep impact. This collective biography of poets like Owen, Sassoon, Brooke, Graves, Rosenberg, and Brittain along with potted biographies of many other war poets, gives the background to their experiences to explain how the war created so much important poetry and why we keep coming back to it 100 years later.
