There can be no area of human experience that has generated a wider range of powerful feelings than war. The 250 poems included in this acclaimed anthology span centuries of human conflict from David's lament for Saul and Jonathan, and Homer's Iliad, to the finest poems of the First and Second World Wars, and beyond. Reflecting the feelings of poets as diverse as Byron, Hardy, Owen, Sassoon, and Heaney, they reveal a great shift in social awareness fromman's early celebratory `war-songs' to the more recent `anti-war' attitudes of poets responding to `man's inhumanity to man' - and to women and children.

There can be no area of human experience that has generated a wider range of powerful feelings than war. Jon Stallworthy's classic anthology spans centuries of human experience of conflict, from David's Lament for Saul and Jonathon, and Homer's Iliad to the finest poems of the First and Second World Wars, and beyond. The roll-call of writers is huge - more than 150 celebratory 'war-songs' to the twentieth century's darker poetic responses to 'man's inhumanity to man'. Here are Virgil and Chaucer, Spenser and Donne, Marvell and Dryden; Coleridge, Shelley, and Browning; Hugo, Whitman, and Rike, as well as the whole sweep of twentieth-century writers. Ten years on from the first edition, Jon Stallworthy has now included more poems on the wars of the twentieth century. The 42 additional poems include works by David Harsent, Anthony Hecht, Miroslav Holub, John Jarmain, Stanley Kunitz, Michael Longley, Czeslaw Milosz, Andrew Motion, and Patrick Shaw-Stewart.

Reissued to mark the centenary of Wilfred Owen's birth, this biography is more than a simple account of his life--the childhood spent in the back streets of Birkenhead and Shrewsbury, the appalling months in the trenches--it is an enquiry into the workings of a poet's mind. Reproducing some of Owen's drawings and facsimile manuscripts of many of his greatest poems, this portrait is indispensable to any student of Wilfred Owen and the poetry of the First World War.

Why should a poet feel the need to be original? What is the relationship between genius and apprenticeship? James Fenton examines some of the most intriguing questions behind the making of the art - issues of creativity and the 'earning' of success, of judgement, tutorage, rivalry, and ambition. He goes on to consider the juvenilia of Wilfred Owen, the 'scarred' lines of Philip Larkin, the inheritance of imperialism, and issues of 'constituency' in Seamus Heaney. He looks too at Marianne Moore, Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath, and their contrasting 'feminisms', at D. H. Lawrence, 'welcoming the dark'. The climax of the book is his superb and extensive discussion of Auden.
