While John McCrae's "In Flanders Fields" stands as the signature poem of World War 1, the Canadian contribution to the poetry of this period is far wider and deeper. This collection of verse from the men and women who experienced the first great war of the twentieth century includes Charles G.D. Roberts, Marjorie Pickthall, Helena Coleman, and Robert Service, among many others. Their poetry captures both the unfathomable loss and unequaled courage of the time.

This contemporary edition includes biographical notes and historical references. Illustrating how amidst the man-made hell of the trenches humanity still clung to the hope and dream of grace, this anthology is a hauntingly lyrical entry to Oxford's new Outlooks on Canadian Literature series.
