Poetry of the First World War

While not the first global war (that honor belongs to what we in the United States label The Seven Years’ War), the carnage that was produced was ineffable. Much poetry was generated out of this conflict. Some of the best sites include: First World War Digital Poetry Archives that contains thousands of poems and artifacts, learned essays, and numerous links to educational resources; the Poetry Foundation’s The Poetry of World War I presenting a lengthy chronological, linked list of poems; Twelve great First World War poems; and Reframing First World War Poetry from the British Library.
