Summary
Examines "the life and work of [the WWI poets--many of whom were killed--which shows not only the war's tragedy but also the hopes and disappointments of a generation of men : Wilfred Owen with his flaring genius; the intense, compassionate Siegfried Sassoon; the composer Ivor Gurney; Robert Graves, who would later spurn his war poems; the nature-loving Edward Thomas; the glamorous Fabian Socialist Rupert Brooke; and the shell-shocked Robert Nichols--all fought in the war, and their poetry is a bold act of creativity in the face of unprecedented destruction"--Amazon.com
