    This little Dover edition provides a cross section of WW I poetry from the excellent to the not so good Usually I prefer an edition with notes, but this included a brief biography of each poet, and some very cursory critical remarks.I met a new to me poet, Ivor Gurney, kind of a voice of the people, and refreshed my memory on most of the others in this volume The sentiments, however expressed, remain contemporary even almost a hundred years later I especially liked Sassoon s Blighters , O This little Dover edition provides a cross section of WW I poetry from the excellent to the not so good Usually I prefer an edition with notes, but this included a brief biography of each poet, and some very cursory critical remarks.I met a new to me poet, Ivor Gurney, kind of a voice of the people, and refreshed my memory on most of the others in this volume The sentiments, however expressed, remain contemporary even almost a hundred years l...
