About this title

Synopsis:

From the earliest times poets have spoken out against the horrors of war - many dying on the battlefields on which they wrote. This anthology gathers together poems against war - from an infamous last stand in Ancient Greece to the chemical warfare of the present-day Gulf. Featuring many of our most treasured poets - Wilfred Owen, Philip Larkin, Stevie Smith and Emily Dickinson among them - "101 Poems Against War" selects too from the poems being written across the barricades: the enemy soldier, a German widow, a young Vietnamese boy, and by contemporary Arabic poets. From the men who held their dying friends to the agony of the women left behind, this anthology gathers those moments of warning and protest from all corners of the earth: the times in which it was left to the poets to speak out against the true terror of war.

About the Author:

Matthew Hollis is the author of Ground Water, short listed for the Whitbread Prize for Poetry, the Guardian First Book Award and the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Now All Roads Lead to France is his first prose book.
