The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry characters Ò 107 Analogy also contains a sample from the work in translation of German French and Italian 'War' poetry As far as English poetry is concerned the period is still and will remain crucial to the development of modern poetry besides providing some of the finest poetry of the twentieth century The period also offers an alternate route to that provided by Eliot and Pound and one in which experience and value come painfully together.

The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry characters Ò 107 This volume aims at being comprehensive within the confines of excellence it does not attempt a picture in verse of the War; nor does it aim at representing all those who wrote verse It offers the best work by the best poets It therefore includes a few poets such as Hardy Kipling and Flint who were not combatants but who yet wrote good poetry concerned in the main directly with the War Most of the poets however were combatan. What is it about World War I that garnered such a deluge of superb war poetry There has been wars since man stood erect and poetry almost as long So what was the magic held by those predominantly British soldiers that enabled them to capture horror and dread in such introspective confines as verse In reading this Penguin collection I found that neither Wilfred Owen nor Siegfried Sassoon were the best poetsthat distinction must go to Edmund Blunden whose poetry is both probing and compelling in a way that easily translates into today s reality vernacularIts wounded length from those sad streets of warInto green places here that were my own But now what once was mine is mine no I seek such neighbours here and I find noneWith such strong gentleness and tireless willThose ruined houses seared themselves in mePassionate I look for their dumb story stillAnd the charred stub outspeaks the living tree
