Part of the "Character Sketches" series, this title looks at World War I poets.
The series features compact guides devoted to literary, artistic and historic personalities, circles and themes.
They contain portraits in a variety of media, all selected from the National Portrait Gallery's diverse collection. The illustrations are accompanied by substantial and relevant quotations from the works of the people featured, as well as contemporary descriptions and anecdotes from unpublished as well as published sources.
The books should be of interest to general readers and students alike. Alan Judd is the author of "A Breed of Heroes", "The Devil's Own Work", "The Noonday Devil" and "Short of Glory".
