Poetry of the First World War

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A selection of critical essays edited by Dominic Hibberd. Casebook Series - General Editor: A. E. Dyson. This volume presents critical discussions of First World War poetry as a whole and more detailed studies of individual poets (in particular Brooke, Blunden, Owen, Rosenberg, Sassoon, Sorley and Edward Thomas). Part One contains comments by the poets and their contemporaries. Part Two illustrates critical views in the 1930s-40s, and Part Three provides a representative selection of recent studies. An insight is given into the changes in critical opinion from the early eulogies of Brooke and the first reviews of Sassoon, through the slow recognition of Owen and Rosenberg, to modern evaluations of the worth of First war poetry.

The selection embraces comment by John Bayley, B Bergonzi, Edmund Blunden, W S Churchill, William Cooke, Donald Davie, B de Selincourt, T S Eliot, P Fussell, D Goldring, E. Gosse, D W Harding, P Hobsbaum, J H Johnston, G Kyle, C Day Lewis, H W Massingham, J W Murray, Henry Newbolt, Wilfred Owen, David Perkins, John Press, Timothy Rogers, Isaac Rosenberg, Siegfried Sassoon, J Silkin, Charles Sorley, Dylan Thomas, Edward Thomas, Arthur Waugh, D Welland, Virginia Woolf and W B Yeats.

The volume editor, Dominic Hibberd, is lecturer in English in the University of Keele. His publications include the edited collection Wilfred Owen: War Poems and Others (1973) ad the volume on Owen in the British Council's 'Writers and their Work' series (1975).

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
