Summary
  • "While probing the work of such well-known poets as Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, and Randall Jarrell, Janis P. Stout also highlights the impact of the World Wars on lesser studied but equally compelling sources, such as the music of Charles Ives, Cole Porter, Aaron Copeland, and Irving Berlin. She challenges the commonplace belief that war poetry came only from the battlefield and was written only by men examining the wartime writings of women poets such as Rose Macaulay, Marianne Moore, Elizabeth Bishop, and Gwendolyn Brooks. She also challenges the assumption that World War II did not produce poetry of distinction by studying the work of John Ciardi, Karl Shapiro, Louis Simpson, Robert Frost, and Wallace Stevens
  • While emphasizing aesthetic continuity between the wars, Stout stresses that the poetry that emerged from each displays a greater variety than is usually recognized."--Jacket
