P O E T S
who served in the
FIRST WORLD WAR ~

"We came down to the front of the Twelfth Army, back of Riga,
where gaunt and bootless men sickened in the mud
of desperate trenches; and when they saw us they started up,
with their pinched faces and flesh showing blue
through their torn clothing, demanding eagerly,
'Did you bring anything to read!"

John Reed, Ten Days that Shook the World




NOTE: All writers featured in this section served in some capacity in the First World War or Russian Revolution, whether in the military, medical corps, relief work, or as a war correspondent.

A primary source for information on these individuals is Tim Cross's The Lost Voices of World War I (University of Iowa Press, 1988), an anthology and compendium more comprehensive than any collection we have seen of individuals in the arts who died in the war, but which lists no survivors of the war. Other primary sources employed are A. St. John Adcock's For Remembrance: Soldier Poets Who Have Fallen in the War (Hodder & Stoughton, 1918), Robert Giddings' The War Poets (Orion Books, 1988), Martin Stephen's Never Such Innocence: A New Anthology of Great War Verse (J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd, 1991), and Anne Powell's A Deep Cry: First World War Soldier-Poets Killed in France and Flanders (Palladour Books, 1993). Beyond these anthologies, we have consulted a wide range of sources, a full bibliographical listing of which will be provided in the near future.

A list of poets eventually to be found on this site is given below. Depending on your browser, individuals for which a separate information page already exists are shown in green, or underlined. To access information about them, as well as books by or about them (if we have them), simply click on their names. Individuals for which a page is not yet prepared are shown in black. Names of individuals who survived the war are preceded by a green star . Names of those who died in the war are preceded by a black star . Names of those who survived the war, but who were wounded, gassed or shell-shocked are preceded by a red cross .

Additional poets will be added to this section on a continual basis.
