Provocative and sobering, this collection of poems reflects the timeless nature of courage and barbarity in war. Poems by great twentieth-century war poets like Owen, Sassoon and Douglas, sit alongside more modern names such as Fenton, Dunmore and Murray, and complement contributions from more ancient sources like Shakespeare and the Bible.
Drawing on her experience as a poetry-prize judge and reviewer as well as an award-winning writer, Jan Mark has collected outstanding poetry full of raw emotion that pains a vivid new picture of war and conflict.
