From Homer and Virgil to Byron to Yeats to Auden to Marianne Moore and Elizabeth Bishop, from ancient China's anonymous bards to Poland's Mickiewicz and Italy's Primo Levi, poets of all times, places, and sensibilities have been moved to write about war.They have commemorated Thermopylae, Agincourt, the Battle of Shiloh, London in an air raid. They have remembered the Golden Vanity and Mademoiselle from Armentieres. They have announced "The Charge of the Light Brigade, " and handed down, through oral tradition, the Blackfoot Indian "Song for a Fallen Warrior." Here are more than 100 of their most memorable poems, ranging from Horace on the Battle of Actium and Heinrich Heine's "The Two Grenadiers" to Adrienne Rich's Vietnam-era "Newsreel." From Wilfred Owen and Sigfried Sassoon to Randall Jarrell and Stevie Smith, the poets represented here have encompassed the entire spectrum of feeling -- pride, compassion, courage, anger, anguish, laughter -- in this extraordinary anthology.

JOHN HOLLANDER is the author of more than a dozen books of poetry. His first, A Crackling of Thorns, was chosen by W. H. Auden as the 1958 volume in the Yale Series of Younger Poets. He wrote eight books of criticism, including the award-winning Rhyme's Reason: A Guide to English Verse and The Work of Poetry, and edited or coedited twenty-two collections, among them The Oxford Anthology of English Literature, American Poetry: The Nineteenth Century, and (with Anthony Hecht, with whom he shared the Bollingen Prize in Poetry in 1983) Jiggery-Pokery: A Compendium of Double Dactyls.

Mr. Hollander attended Columbia and Indiana Universities and was a Junior Fellow of the Society of Fellows of Harvard University. He taught at Connecticut College and Yale, and was a professor of English at Hunter College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. In 1990 he received a MacArthur Fellowship. He died in August 2013.
