Six Poets of the Great War: Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Isaac Rosenberg, Richard Aldington, Edmund Blunden, Edward Thomas, Rupert Brooke and Many Others Reviews
A stunningly beautiful compilation of poetry from a multitude of authors, revealing their accounts of the Great War and it's devastating consequences. It left me in tears, yet determined to read more of the poets' work: This book is highly recommended for all.
If you are like me and refuse to believe that war is necessary... this collection appeals to thoughts and senses..WILFRED OWEN (about 25 when he died ONE WEEK before the end of the War - his family hearing the news as the town's church bells rang out..)... Dulce decorem est (The old Lie) ". . . he comes at me sputtering, choking, drowning..)... Anthem to Youth " . . . stuttering rifles' ..." & " . . . monstrous anger of guns. . ."... Parable of the old & young man " . . . Offer the ram of pride instead of him. BUT THE OLD MAN WOULD NOT, AND SLEW HIS SON and half the seed of Europe, one by one"..."=-=-=-=-SIEGFIED SASSON Made a statement to the press which an MP read in parliament... the Army declared him mentally ill.. He threw his war ribbons in the Mersey... He and Wilfred Owen spent time together at a treatment centre. He managed through it all...... WOMEN " while you are knitting socks for your son,his face is trodden in the mud....".... MEMORY " When I was .... gay and feckless as a colt..." "but now my heart is heavy-laden . . "... SUICIDE IN THE TRENCH... " you smug-faced crowds ... sneak home to pray.... you'll never know ....the hell where youth and laughter go"RUPERT BROOK who died early in the war was. Peace, Safety, Death, the Dead, the Soldier (If I should died, think only this of me....) Rupert Brook had a more gentile way of getting his point across... than did Sassoon or Owen...NOT SURE:. . .
