Survivor's Songs PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Survivor's Songs free pdf From Homer to Heaney, the voices of men and women have seldom been more piercing, more poignant, than in time of conflict. For fifty years, Jon Stallworthy has been attuned to such voices. In Survivors' Songs he explores a series of poetic encounters with war, with essays on Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, and others. Beautifully written, this moving book sets the poetry and prose of the First World War and its aftermath in the wider context of writing about warfare from prehistoric Troy to Anglo-Saxon England- from Agincourt to Flanders- from El Alamein to Vietnam- from the wars of yesterday to the wars of tomorrow.
