There are many anthologies of poetry of the First World War, most of which concentrate only on a few poets. Voices of Silence is different.
Less literary but equally important, the verse gathered here is by the ordinary soldier. It adds a new and important dimension to our perception of the immediate response to war.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Few conflicts have given rise to such a literary outpouring as the Great War. The poets that the struggle produced are now as well-known as the battles in which they fought -- Owen, Sassoon, Graves and Rosenberg being among the most famous. This anthology extends its range beyond this familiar handful to bring lesser or totally unknown poets to our attention. There are a few famous names -- Osbert Sitwell, J B Priestley and Alan Seeger among them -- but most are totally unknown today, although many fought and died in the trenches. Noakes has scoured contemporary newspapers, books, trench and hospital magazines, postcards and an illicit manuscript magazine put together by conscientious objectors to bring these verses back into print.
