The Terrible Rain

The War Poets 1939–1945

Paperback, pages somewhat toned but tight, quite reasonable condition. First published 1966.

A powerful anthology of WWII poems.

This is a companion volume to Brian Gardner's anthology of the poetry of the First World War, Up the Line to Death. Many of the poets of the Second World War — at least forty of whom died on active service — are already forgotten. But here, too, are the poets whose fame has endured: Keith Douglas, Sidney Keyes, Alun Lewis and John Pudney; and the poets of the 'Home Front', such as Louis MacNeice and Dylan Thomas.
Over thirty years later these poems can be seen to be remarkable in their faithful recording of the spirit of their time. Anyone who remembers the Second World War will find in these pages the accurate and moving evocation of an age. Please click here to ask a question
