This volume concentrates on the years 1880-1918, when some of Britain's most outstanding and poignant poetry was produced from the horror of war by Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, and Siegfried Sassoon. The poetry of Kipling records the contradicitons of Britain as Empire. The realism of these writers stands in contrast with the early magical poetry of W.B. Yeats and the rural tradition in the works of Thomas Hardy and the young D.H. Lawrence.
