• World War One British Poets: Brooke, Owen, Sassoon, Rosenberg and Others (Unabridged)

    Ironically, the horrors of World War One produced a splendid flowering of British verse as young poets, many of them combatants, confronted their own morality, the death of dear friends, the loss of innocence, the failure of civilization, and the madness of war itself.This volume contains a rich selection of poems from that time by Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Isaac Rosenberg, and others known especially for their war poetry — as well as poems by such major poets as Robert Graves, Thomas Hardy, A. E. Housman, Robert Bridges, and Rudyard Kipling.Included among a wealth of m... [Read More]

  • A Corner of a Foreign Field

    "Some of the most beautiful poetry ever written has come from the horror of the trenches. Represented here are poems dashed off in the full awfulness of the battlefield, as well as those honed with the terrible benefit of hindsight. And there are poems from an earlier age whose themes and aching beauty exactly matched the mood of a nation as an entire generation was lost to war." "Here also are poems inspired by the experience of the countless mothers, wives, sweethearts, sisters and daughters left behind." The poems are counterpointed by painstakingly restored photographic images - many seen ... [Read More]

  • Poetry of the First World War: An Anthology (Oxford World's Classics)

    The First World War produced an extraordinary flowering of poetic talent. Its poets mark the conflict in ways that are both intensely personal and as enduring as any monument.

This new anthology provides a definitive record of the achievements of the Great War poets and offers a fresh assessment of the work on the centenary of the Great War's outbreak.

  • Civil War (Oxford World's Classics)

    Lucan's epic poem on the civil war between Caesar and Pompey, unfinished at the time of his death, stands beside the poems of Virgil and Ovid in the first rank of Latin epic. This newly annotated, free verse translation conveys the full force of Lucan's writing and his grimly realistic view of the subject. The work is a powerful condemnation of civil war, emphasizing the stark, dark horror of the catastrophies which the Roman state inflicted upon itself. Both the introduction and glossary set the scene for readers unfamiliar with Lucan and explore his relationship with earlier writers of Latin... [Read More]

    Affluent lifestyle—influential family—prestigious education—Math English had none of these. Yet he was envied by those who did. How could English, orphaned as a child, raised in post-Civil War Georgia with only an eighth grade education, an army recruit at 21 working his way up through the ranks, inspire the famous George S. Patton Jr.? What led Patton to memorialize English in poetry, calling him “the noblest of the slain”? A Hero for All Time is the story of a young enlisted soldier serving for 16 years with the Coast Artillery Corps primarily in the frontier region of the Pacific ... [Read More]

  • Every War Has Two Losers: William Stafford on Peace and War

    Born the year World War I began, acclaimed poet William Stafford (1914-1993) spent World War II in a camp for conscientious objectors. Throughout a century of conflict he remained convinced that wars simply don’t work. In his writings, Stafford showed it is possible—and crucial—to think independently when fanatics act, and to speak for reconciliation when nations take sides. He believed it was a failure of imagination to only see two options: to fight or to run away.This book gathers the evidence of a lifetime’s commitment to nonviolence, including an account of Stafford’s near-hanging...

  • War Letters of Fallen Englishmen (Pine Street Books)

    More than eight million young men perished during the First World War—a staggering figure. The natural reaction to such a great loss of humanity was to forget the individuals and recast the conflict into one of faceless armies and battles commemorated in stone and metal monuments. War Letters of Fallen Englishmen was published following the war in order to remind the living of those who were lost in the name of the British crown—brothers, husbands, fathers, sons.This collection provides, in the very words of those who participated and died in combat, the closest approximation possible to t...

And indeed, mortality, flowers, and powerful aesthetic collisions typify much of his subsequent work.Over the decades, as Benn suffered the vicissitudes of fate (the death of his mother from cancer; the death of his first wife, Edith; his...

    War and the Iliad is a perfect introduction to the range of Homer's art as well as a provocative and rewarding demonstration of the links between literature, philosophy, and questions of life and death.Simone Weil's The Iliad, or the Poem of Force is one of her most celebrated works--an inspired analysis of Homer's epic that presents a nightmare vision of combat as a machine in which all humanity is lost. First published on the eve of war in 1939, the essay has often been read as a pacifist manifesto. Rachel Bespaloff was a French contemporary of Weil's whose work similarly explored the comple...

  • Aeneid (Oxford World's Classics)

    Frederick Ahl's new translation captures the excitement, poetic energy, and intellectual force of the original in a way that has never been done before. Ahl has used a version of Virgil's ancient hexameter, a swift-moving six-beat line varying between twelve and seventeen syllables, to reproduce the original poetry in a thrillingly accurate and engaging style. This is an Aeneid that the first-time reader can grasp and enjoy, and whose rendition of Virgil's subtleties of thought and language will enthrall those already familiar with the epic. Unlike most translators, Ahl has chosen to retain Vi... [Read More]
