it was amazing

Appolinaire was one of the great figures of 'modern' poetry. Also had a great eye on his fellow visual artists as well. And that is the beauty of this guy's work - it's visual as well as literal. What you get here is World War 1 told in a manner that is fresh as a new flower but dealing with a deadly world. Essential poetry collection from a master!
