Voices of Silence The Alternative Book of First World War Poetry


Voices of Silence The Alternative Book of First World War Poetry by Vivien Noakes

The poetry of the First World War has determined our perception of the war itself. This volume features poetry drawn from old newspapers and journals, trench and hospital magazines, individual volumes of verse, gift books, postcards, and a manuscript magazine put together by conscientious objectors.

About the Author

Vivien Noakes has a doctorate in the poetry of the First World War poet, Isaac Rosenberg, and has edited the definitive edition of Rosenberg's poetry for the Oxford University Press. She is the leading authority on the life and work of the nonsense poet and painter, Edward Lear, and her book Edward Lear: The Life of a Wanderer has recently been reissued by Sutton.
