This anthology brings together poems by 21 authors, including Wilfred Owen, DH Lawrence and Katharine Tynan, to illustrate how contemporary responses to the First World War changed from an initial excitement at the opportunity to display courage and chivalry, through years of bitterness and rage, to calls for compassion and reconciliation. The poems are juxtaposed with paintings, mostly from the Imperial War Museum’s collection, which depict wartime scenes on and off the battlefield.
