Description

This anthology looks at a broad, international cross-section of literary talent cut short by the 1914-18 War and is published to coincide with the Armistice Festival on the 80th anniversary of the end of World War I. The writers include both the familiar names of Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, Saki, Edward Thomas, Apollinaire and Alain-Fournier and some who are receiving English translation for the first time such as Hungarian Geza Gyoni and Czech Frantisek Gellner or the German Alfred Sack. In all, some 60 writers from just about all the combatant nations are represented. Extracts from their work are cited with introductory essays and biographical and bibliographical details, while an appendix lists some 800 writers who are known to have been killed during the war. Tim Cross is responsible for mounting the Armistice Festival, the first international artistic commemoration of the fallen of World War I.show more
