Author:

Abstract:

This paper is about the historiography of World War I British poetry and what has been argued on the topic. This field has not been studied in great depth and this paper demonstrates that finding. War poetry was very common during World War I and provided comfort for many soldier poets. Today it is very useful in understanding what the war was like on the front and how the men felt about war itself.
