Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

I was a big fan of this book, although it was difficult to tell whether it was Copp’s translation skills or the original verse of the French poets that really struck a chord with me. I suspect it was probably both – because this is a more modern translation, it felt almost like a contemporary read, which was interesting because of the subject matter.

Essentially, this book is the collection of war poetry from multiple French poets, throughout the First World War. Each author’s section is also prefaced by a short biography, which is just enough to tell you what you need to know about the poets without being flooded with information – it’s also a selection of poetry, rather than a collection, so you get to read the best of their best work. Well worth reading, folks!
