Rupert Brooke & Wilfred Owen Selected Poems

4.23  ·  Rating Details ·  26 Ratings  ·  5 Reviews
Here are the unforgettable works of two British poets who chronicled The Great War, but never lived to see its end. Although some of Brooke's verses come from an earlier, happier time, the most powerful poems convey the tragedy of warfare, including Brooke's "1914: The Soldier" and Owen's "Anthem for Doomed Youth" and "The Sentry."

Here in this book, we have poetry from the two 'Great War' poets; these being Rupert Brooke and Wilfred Owen, of course. These good old boys had quite a bit in common.
