Summary

An anthology of over 60 classic poems of war and remembrance. The horrors of war have prompted countless soldiers and civilians to compose poetry, whether to denounce needless slaughter, celebrate courage or honour the dead.
This collection contains a range of the very best poems about conflict and commemoration, including Wilfrid Owen's classic "Dulce et Decorum Est", Christina Rossetti's "Remember", Yeats' "An Irish Airman Foresees his Death", and Tennyson's famous "The Charge of the Light Brigade", as well as several of Rupert Brooke's sonnets from 1914.
Here, too, are lesser-known but nonetheless affecting poems such as Leslie Coulson's "The Rainbow", Robert Southey's "The Soldier's Wife", Alan Seeger's "I Have a Rendezvous with Death" and Isaac Rosenberg's "Break of Day in the Trenches". Beautifully read by Dean Lennox Kelly, Jenny Agutter, Michael Jayston, Rupert Holliday Evans and Samantha Bond, these timeless poems are poignant and powerful.
