Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184285030X, Paperback)There is a profound sense of discovery for each generation that comes to read the work of the war poets. The reader has to comprehend the sheer enormity and loss of life in a theatre of war that was at once hellish and yet paradoxically a cause for massive social change. In this title, the reader is shown how to consider the writing of war and conflict in general and then to understand the historical context. The author then explains the cathartic response to transmuting pain into art or literature. This book is a popular introduction to the War Poets for GCSE students and is also popular at Undergraduate level as a fast track reader for those students who need to be reminded of certain poets.
