From Homer and Virgil to Byron and Yeats, from Shelley and Whitman to Auden and Stevens, from ancient China’s anonymous bards to Poland’s Mickiewicz and Israel’s Amichai, poets of all times, places, and sensibilities have been moved to write about war. Here are more than one hundred of their most memorable poems, ranging from Horace on the Battle of Actium to Adrienne Rich’s Vietnam-era "Newsreel." An extraordinary anthology.
This book is part of the Everyman's Library Pocket Poets series - that means it's rather lovely. It's a pocket clothbound volume with an elegant jacket, full cloth sewn binding, silk ribbon marker and headbands, gold stamping on front and spine and decorative endpapers. A beautiful one for your bookshelf or a gorgeous gift.
