Book Description: There can be no area of human experience that has generated a wider range of powerful feelings than war. Jon Stallworthy's classic anthology spans centuries of human experience of conflict, from David's Lament for Saul and Jonathon, and Homer's Iliad to the finest poems of the First and Second World Wars, and beyond. The roll-call of writers is huge - more than 150 celebratory 'war-songs' to the twentieth century's darker poetic responses to 'man's inhumanity to man'. Here are Virgil and Chaucer, Spenser and Donne, Marvell and Dryden; Coleridge, Shelley, and Browning; Hugo, Whitman, and Rike, as well as the whole sweep of twentieth-century writers. Ten years on from the first edition, Jon Stallworthy has now included more poems on the wars of the twentieth century. The 42 additional poems include works by David Harsent, Anthony Hecht, Miroslav Holub, John Jarmain, Stanley Kunitz, Michael Longley, Czeslaw Milosz, Andrew Motion, and Patrick Shaw-Stewart.

Book Description: An unrivalled collection of literary gossip and intimate sidelights on the lives of the authors. The dictionary defines an anecdote as 'a short account of an entertaining or interesting incident', and the anecdotes in this collection more than live up to that description. Many of them are funny, often explosively so. Others are touching, outrageous, sinister, inspiring, or downright weird. They show writers in the English-speaking world from Chaucer to the present acting both unpredictably, and deeply in character. The range is wide - this is a book which finds room for Milton and Margaret Atwood, George Eliot and P. G. Wodehouse, Chinua Achebe and Ian Fleming, Brendan Behan and Wittgenstein. It is also a book in which you can find out which great historian's face was once mistaken for a baby's bottom, which film star left a haunting account of Virginia Woolf not long before her death, and what Agatha Christie really thought of Hercule Poirot - a book not just for lovers of literature, but for anyone with a taste for the curiosities of human nature.

The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
