    As a first foray into reading the poetry of WWI, think Tim Kendall has put together a sweeping collection of poetry that gives the reader/searcher a sense of what the British soldier-poets and those surrounding them thought during the time. I was happily surprised to see so many women poets - ambulance drivers, support staff, and others - included in this collection as well. This is an era and an idea - the war poet - that I only know a cursory bit about and wanted to find jumping off points.

This is an era and an idea - the war poet - that I only know a cursory bit about and wanted to find jumping off points. Which I did in spades. This collection gave me recommendations to follow trails and books to order; ideas to seek out in my non-poetic WWI reading; and a general sense of the optimism as it became cynical pessimism over the course of the war. I am glad trench songs and soldier songs were also included. I would recommend this anthology to anyone who wants to know more of WWI and the tensions men and women dealt with over its course. Tensions of fear, foe, patriotism and failure, and of wires and battle itself. There are many I will return to and many to search out. I have ordered In Parenthesis by David Jones for next.

Why I read this anthology The poems collected in this book by Tim Kendall concern the epoch which interests me most in history (at the moment) - World War I and the fundamental changes it brought about to society (at least Western culture). I have read several books on the topic, portraying this epoch from various historical viewpoints. And works of fiction set in this era. It was time for me to try to glimpse the feelings this conflict evoked in people. Since I believe poetry to be the closest we can get to communicate emotions between each other (when it comes to written art), an anthology of this kind was the next step. My subjective opinion Now a problem looms in front of me. How do you rate and review an anthology of poetry? Since it is a collection of poetry by various authors, my subjective opinion will be of even less value than usually. Although I will give it nonetheless; I was captured by the wide range of emotions and thoughts which this conflict evoked in people, both during and after. While reading the various poems, I soon realised I wanted to read more accounts of how it was to actually be in the trenches. The fear, anger, boredom, sadness, helplessness, or courage that filled people. Or just how the mud felt, what the food tasted like, or how the cold bit. Now after finishing this anthology, I still feel I have not read enough such accounts. The 4-and-a-½ stars I feel the anthology is definitely worth, reflect this incomplete satisfaction (otherwise it would have been 5) - not a reflection on the quality of the poems themselves. My "objective" opinion So much for my subjective opinion. The closest I can come to an objective description, is to say I believe T.K. has gathered a very varied and rich collection of poems, representing authors of all kinds of backgrounds. I found the introduction to each author informative and interesting, giving additional depth to the following poems. I do not know; but my insatisfaction regarding descriptions of "trench life", might be due to the fact there simply are not that many such poematic depictions. If I may venture so far as to highlight some poems I found moving. My personal favourite (which I returned to several times), was "Unidentified" by Mary Broden. The common man is depicted as a soldier-symbol. While war and strife makes all pretentious "wise men" and their pompous thinking pointless. How life is reduced to the bare basics by this. It is unfortunately too long for me to write here. "Only a Boche" by Robert Service was "professionally" interesting, since it was the only poem to come anywhere close to describe the work I might have been doing myself - serving at a dressing station. "Dulce et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen describes in vivid detail a gas attack. I saw his round mouth's crimson deepen as it fell, Like a Sun, in his last deep hour; Watched the magnificent recession of farewell, Clouding, half gleam, half glower, And a last splendour burn the heavens of his cheek. And in his eyes The cold stars lighting, very old and bleak, In different skies. A poem by Wilfred Owen I found movingly mysterious and full of intimate emotion. I will end this review with the most beautiful (and bitter-real) hymn to the dead: When you see millions of the mouthless dead Across your dreams in pale battalions go, Say not soft things as other men have said, That you'll remember. For you need not so. Give them not praise. For, deaf, how should they know It is not curses heaped on each gashed head? Nor tears. Their blind eyes see not your tears flow. Nor honour. It is easy to be dead. Say only this, “They are dead.” Then add thereto, “Yet many a better one has died before.” Then, scanning all the o'ercrowded mass, should you Perceive one face that you loved heretofore, It is a spook. None wears the face you knew. Great death has made all his for evermore. By Charles Sorley.

    This collection is limited to British poetry, but it contains a meaningful introduction to the war's impact on articulate men. Take an Army of Mercenaries by A.E. Houseman: These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling And took their wages and are dead. Their shoulders held the sky suspended, They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.

Houseman wasn't a participant, but his poem captures the sacrifice of the BEF in the first months of the war. There are dozens of poems as good in this collection, maybe more. It is heartbreaking to read about disillusionment.

    I’m very glad I read these. The collected authors here lived through the war. Their poetry speaks the reality of it, the drama of it, the glory of it, the results of it. It is a wonderful collection. It took me awhile to enter it. But once I did it was not very far from my thoughts. The images and power of the words to speak to the violence of our hearts and our nation states was dramatic.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. – “For the Fallen”, Laurence Binyon Poetry of the First World War: An Anthology edited by Tim Kendall is a collection of British poems on the First World War. Kendall is Head of English at the University of Exeter and former editor of the poetry journal Thumbscrew. He has served as a lecturer and has published two collections: one of poetry and the other of essays. Anyone who has read my reviews knows my position on World War I. It was the starting part of the the twentieth century. Mechanized warfare, air-power, armor all saw their start as tools of war. Alliances that started the war would become alliances that kept the peace in the Cold War. Empires fell and communism rose. It would directly contribute to the start of World War II and indirectly to the Cold War. It was the decade the world lost it innocence. War lost its romance. World War I was the last war where wrote songs to support the war. It was the last war that the poets would honor. Each poet's poems begin with a short biography of the poet. The poets come from all walks of life -- from landed gentry to a tailor's son. Kendall, in his introduction, goes into other aspects of the war like the change from youthful idealism to bitterness of the technological slaughter on the grandest scale. The writing of the poems range from 1914 to 1966. The poets are all from Britain or Ireland. Some lived long lives and some did not make it home from the war. There has never been a war like World War I and never one like it since. Wars have been more violent, more technological, more devastating, but never more critical in changing mankind's view of war and of man himself. The poets had different views. Yeat's wanted to see Germany defeated, but was hesitant to throw his support behind an imperialist empire that had not given his home country of Ireland Home Rule. May Sinclair was a volunteer in an Ambulance corps in Belgium. She felt betrayed and and expressed her betrayal in her poem “Journal” after finding out she was no longer welcome in the ambulance corps. Thomas Hardy only wrote three patriotic poems because he claimed he did not write patriotic poems well; most of his poems were darker and much sadder. Kipling recalled and compared the war to the Boer War and expanded to “Tin Fish” (submarines) and the well known poem “My Boy Jack.” Wilfrid Gibson manages to capture life of the front line soldier in “Between the Lines”although he only drove trucks in the war, in London. Margaret Postgate Cole wrote the moving “The Falling Leaves” far removed from the war. Wilfred Owen experienced the war first hand. “Anthem for Doomed Youth” and “Disabled” show the realities of the war. That reality is reinforced by the fact that Owen was killed one week before the armistice. Kendall combines some well known wartime poets with some obscure poets. Not every poet is in this collection, but the range and variety are very well done. This collection is an excellent reference for anyone interested in World War I or poetry of the early twentieth century. This is a book worthy of any bookshelf.

    An interesting anthology of First World War poetry that would make an interesting companion to the Penguin Book of First World War poetry, edited by Jon Silkin. This anthology is selected and edited by Tim Kendall. He has ordered the poetry by the birthdate of poets. Oldest first - in this case Thomas Hardy.

The poets are often the ones you'd expect: Edward Thomas, Siegfried Sassoon, Rupert Brooke, Ivor Gurney, Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen, Robert Graves and Edmund Blunden. However, Kendall has also selected a number of lesser-known poets and made an effort to include women writers too, which is an acknowledgement of their existence and a gentle repost to Seigfried Sassoon's 'Glory of Women'. Kendall also includes a section on 'Music Hall and Trench Songs'. You'll be familiar with a lot of these if you've seen 'O What a Lovely War!' I hadn't come across 'That Shit Shute' before though, which is bitterly funny and aimed at a specific General. In his introduction, Kendall says, "During the First World War, poetry became established as the barometer for the nation's values: the greater the civilisation, the greater its poetic heritage...The close identification of war poetry with a British national character persists to the present day." (xv) And Kendall's introduction is worth reading to contextualise the poems as both literature and as a response to experience. It also explains his choices. There's a lot of fine poetry here. There's anger in some of it - Arthur Graham West's "God! How I Hate You, You Young Cheerful Men!" springs to mind particularly. But most of it seems to be an attempt to understand, explain and remember. I think of Anna Akhmatova again when reading these poems and two lines from "Requiem": “Can you describe this?" And I said: "I can."

    My approach to this collection was to hunt for the poems that move me (perhaps on one else) in the context of war itself. I found that the poems that generally met this were by poets who were in the war or very close to it. I did not read all of the works and today I periodically review and study poems that interest me. I believe war will never leave us and it is important to understand the experience. Poetry helps.

    this poetry collection is... so so good i can scarcely find a poem i dislike in this whole collection. i've memorized 'the soldier' (brooke) and 'breakfast' (gibson) because of this anthology, and have been introduced to some brilliant writers in here i'd never read before, such as wilfrid gibson and thomas hardy. if anyone is just getting into the great war/its literature, read this collection to start you out. this poetry collection is... so so good i can scarcely find a poem i dislike in this whole collection. i've memorized 'the soldier' (brooke) and 'breakfast' (gibson) because of this anthology, and have been introduced to some brilliant writers in here i'd never read before, such as wilfrid gibson and thomas hardy. if anyone is just getting into the great war/its literature, read this collection to start you out.

    One of the few good things that came out of WWI was excellent poetry. My only quibble with this edition is that it focuses almost exclusively on the British poets. It is well-organized, however, and provides a good sampling of the major poems with some helpful notes.

    This is a splendid anthology of poetry and lyric born of the experience of war: the selection covers those who participated as soldiers, officers and enlisted men, those who observed because of age or because of gender; thus it promotes a varied range of viewpoints and experiences, of suffering, both physical and emotional, but also of courage in all its forms. Almost every poem I expected to read is in this volume and almost every poet.

Almost every poem I expected to read is in this volume and almost every poet. There are some pleasant surprises - I did not expect to read Housman's Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries, as I did not realise that it explicitly applied to the First World War. Its inclusion is important, I think, in recognising the sacrifice of brave men. Other such poems include Binyon's For the Fallen. Idealism is represented by the selection from Brooke and I was especially pleased to read Patrick Shaw Stewart's [I saw a man this morning], his only poem, written on the back fly-leaf of his copy of A Shropshire Lad, and discovered after his death in action. This poem contains the lines, poignant in their irony, "Was it so hard, Achilles/so very hard to die?/ Thou knewest, and I know not/ so much the happer I". The Homeric references are apt, I think, and I was constantly reminded of the Iliad as I read the selection, many poems by women, focusing on their losses, as in May Wedderburn Cannan's Lamplight, "We planned to shake the world together, you and I/ Being young and very wise", poems by older men, for example Kipling's My boy Jack, but always the focus on the reality of war itself from Sassoon, Owen, Graves and many others. Isaac Rosenberg and David Jones represent `other ranks' and some powerful, original work of theirs is included. W B Yeats provides another perspective, "I think it better that in times like these/ A poet keeps his mouth shut". The introduction is informative and interesting, the biographical synopses valuable, the notes always useful. Attention is drawn to recent studies and critical arguments, such as Elizabeth Vandiver's Stand in the Trench, Achilles. The inclusion of Music Hall and Trench songs adds perspective. An excellent anthology, highly recommended.

I would most definitely recommend this, whether you like poetry or not. It’s incredible.

    For the most part, an interesting collection of writers and poems. This collection is limited to English and Irish poets. Some really didn't catch my interest, though many did hold my attention. The biography at the beginning of each poet's section was great since I was unfamiliar with some of them. I do wish the notes had been included within the section as well. Flipping back and forth between the section I was reading and the notes at the very back was tiresome! Plan to read again! For the most part, an interesting collection of writers and poems.

    The poets of WWI were very good, very sad, very startled by the violence of war. This group contains some of the very best poets on the subject of war - Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, for example. What surprised me were some of the poets included. Somehow, I never thought of Housman of Kipling as being WWI poets. Or Thomas Hardy. At the end, the book includes 15 sings of the music-hall and trenches. I only wish it had included the music?

    A good mixture of male and female poets. I generally hate the long winded intros that compilers put in anthologies but these were short, to the point, and had valuable knowledge that pertained to the theme of the anthology. My only complaint is the notes being in the back of the book rather than in the bottom margins so that reading was interrupted if I wanted to see the explanation for a specific nuance.
