Publisher's description: "This collection, edited by Professor Paul O’Prey, looks to challenge the notion that all war poetry was of a similar anti-war sentiment, focusing on fifteen poets who all saw active military service and composed poems while they worked, nursed and fought.
Poems from the Front includes ‘November 11th’ by Robert Graves, appearing for the first time as a poem in its own right. A street ballad, it was written in draft to arts patron Edward Marsh in November 1918. Persuaded not to publish it that year, Graves instead released a version in 1969, considering it unprintable until then. "
Centenary News Comment: "O'Prey has collected a multitude of voices to reflect the authentic experience of life on the front line. It is a compelling, emotive and eye-opening anthology."
