Synopses & Reviews
The experiences of the First World War are encapsulated for us in the faces of war poets as well as in their verse. Sketches, photos, oils, self-portraits and text study some of the century's most powerful poets.
Part of the "Character Sketches" series, this title looks at World War I poets. The series features guides devoted to literary, artistic and historic personalities, circles and themes. They contain portraits in a variety of media, all selected from the National Portrait Gallery's collection.
