9780141182070: Three Poets of the First World War (Penguin Classics)

An essential new collection of poetry from the First World War

This indispensable anthology brings together the works of three major poets from the First World War. Ivor Gurney (1890-1937) was a classical music composer and poet who published two volumes of poems, Severn and Somme and War's Embers. Wilfred Owen's (1893- 1918) realistic poetry is remarkable for its details of war and combat. Isaac Rosenberg's (1890-1918) Poems from the Trenches is widely considered one of the finest examples of war poetry from the period. Carefully selected by Jon Stallworthy, a professor emeritus of English at the University of Oxford, these poems comprise a landmark publication that reflects the disparate experiences of war through the voices of the soldiers themselves.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This new selection brings together the poetry of three of the most distinctive and moving voices to emerge from the First World War. Here are the controlled passion and rich metaphors of Wilfred Owen s celebrated verses such as Anthem for Doomed Youth and Strange Meeting , along with many of his lesser-known works. The elegiac poems of Ivor Gurney, including Requiem and The Silent One , reflect his love of language, music and landscape, while the visceral works of Isaac Rosenberg, such as Break of Day in the Trenches , are filled with stark imagery but also, as in Louse Hunting , with vitality and humour. Each poet reflects the disparate experiences of ordinary soldiers in war, and attempts to capture man s humanity in the most inhumane of circumstances. Bookseller Inventory # APG9780141182070
