"Instead of privileging the figure of the front-line and largely British soldier-poet, Van Wienen supplements the well-known canon of Robert Graves, Wilfred Owen, Isaac Rosenberg, and Siegfried Sassoon with lesser-known but nevertheless widely read American combatants, civilians, and women who wrote passionately on the events of World War I." -- Walter Kalaidjian, author ofAmerican Culture between the Wars: Revisionary Modernism and Postmodern CritiqueThis masterfully assembled volume, arranged chronologically, reveals American poets' shifting, conflicting reactions to the war and highlights their efforts to shape U.S. policies and define American attitudes. In his introduction, Mark W. Van Wienen describes the rapid, politically charged responses possible in a culture attuned to poetry. His historical and biographical notes provide a sturdy framework for the study of poetry's role in social activism and change during the ""war to end war.""The most complete resource of its kind,Rendezvous with Deathbrings together poetry originally published in little magazines, labor journals, newspapers. and wartime anthologies. Alight with sorrow, grace, silliness, satire, pride, and anger, works by IWW members, sock poets, pacifists, and protestors take their places next to those by Edith Wharton, Alan Seeger, Wallace Stevens, James Weldon Johnson, Amy Lowell, and Claude McKay.

When we think of God, we automatically tend to think of Him in a couple of extremes. He is either some nebulous power that pops up every now and then, or some sort of wild control freak wiping out nations, causing hurricanes, and ruining fun. This book will hopefully show the reader a picture of God’s intimate and absolute communion with mankind. The stories deal with themes not commonly associated with the Almighty. In this book Jesus walks on water, but not on people. He smiles on success, but not sin. His favor falls on the most unsuspecting, and most of the time we never suspect it could be us. The stories and poems raise questions, spirits, hopes, and sometimes eyebrows. Author Janet Hanna hopes that, as you read this book, you will know there is a God. He rolls up His sleeves and goes to work shutting things, holding off on things, saying “yes” to this and “no” to that. He is closing doors but opening windows—windows of stained glass.

Tumult Tears

During the First World War and its immediate aftermath, hundreds of women wrote thousands of poems on multiple themes and for many different purposes. Womens poetry was published, sold (sometimes to raise funds for charities as diverse as Beef Tea for Troops or The Blue Cross Fund for Warhorses), read, preserved, awarded prizes and often critically acclaimed. Tumult and Tears will demonstrate how womens war poetry, like that of their male counterparts, was largely based upon their day-to-day lives and contemporary beliefs. Poems are placed within their wartime context. From war worker to parent; from serving daughter to grieving mother, sweetheart, wife; from writing whilst within earshot of the guns, whilst making the munitions of war, or whilst sitting in relative safety at home, these predominantly amateur, middle-class poets explore, with a few tantalising gaps, nearly every aspect of womens wartime lives, from their newly public often uniformed roles to their sexuality.
