Writing from a poet's perspective himself, John Greening here considers some neglected names from the Great War - Wilfrid Gibson, Laurence Binyon, Ivor Gurney, Charles Sorley - while reassessing the work of established figures such as Owen, Sassoon, Rosenberg, Thomas, Blunden and Graves. Each chapter provides a biographical summary and close analysis of the verse. There is a discussion, too, of other key poems of the period, including the contribution made by women writers. Greening closes his study with a chapter on the influences of the war on later poets, such as Michael Longley and Ted Hughes.
