The Penguin book of First World War poetry
Part of the Penguin classics series
This anthology reflects the diversity of voices it contains: the poems are arranged thematically and the themes reflect the different experiences of war not just for the soldiers but for those left behind.
This is what makes this volume more accessible and satisfying than others.
In addition to the established canon, there are poems rarely anthologised and a selection of soldiers' songs to reflect the voices of the soldiers themselves.
