i has been said by various critics,
both in this country and in Europe,
that the ;re .ent war has put a stop

very evanescent value. Yet this
auraology of poems which the war hair
produced possesses a very permanent
Long after the war has become a
thing of maps and histories, thereal
history of the time may be preserved
in just such a collection as this. These
are poems written by those outside
the conflict, and those inside the fir-
ing line. They come from five na-
tions and are written in many differ-
ont moods. They range from the
searching indictment of Harold Bag-
bie's "Neutral?" to the poems writ-
ten from the trenches, such as "Into
Battle," by Julian Grenfel, an English
captain who was fatally wounded in
the siege of Ypres. One realizes the
heroism of the average soldier more
plainly in such a poem than in one
coming from someone who writes
about the heroism of the soldier.
In all the contributions from poets
of recognized rank there are of
course some fine bits of poetry. Among
these are Rupert Brooke's "Soldier,"
John Masefield's "The Island of
Skyros," Alice Meynell's "Summer in
England," and Louis Untermeyer's
All the poetry in this collection may
not be good poetry, some of it is crude
in workmanship and commonplace in
conception. Yet running through it
all is a fine threadof heartache and
sorrow. For this quality, and because
it will always possess this quality,
"Poems of the Great War" deserves
its place in the literature of the fu-
