Description

Who else wants to be able to analyse the War Poets? There is a profound sense of discovery for each generation who comes to read the work of the war poets. The reader has to comprehend the sheer enormity and loss of life in a theatre that was at once hellish and paradoxically a cause of massive social change. In this Studymate, the reader is shown how to consider the writing of war and conflict in general and then to understand the historical context. The author then explains the cathartic response of transmuting pain into art or literature.show more
