Above the dreamless dead : World War I in poetry and comics( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the Great War dragged on and its catastrophic death toll mounted, poets turned their pens to a world upside down. Many of the Trench Poets, as they came to be called, were soldier-poets dispatching their verse from the front lines. Known for their impassioned portrayals of life and death on the Western Front, these poems became, for much of the world, the literary heart of the Great War. In Above the Dreamless Death, the words of the Trench Poets find dramatic expression and reinterpretation in the hands of some of the greatest cartoonists working today. This daring marriage of poetry and comics, edited by New York Times bestselling editor Chris Duffy, is a moving and illuminating tribute to those who fought and died in World War I"--Publisher description

Miracle on Sinai : a satirical novel by Osbert Sitwell( Book )

30 editions published between 1933 and 1949 in English and Undetermined and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A satirical novel which should appeal to the audience that enjoyed Father Malachi's Miracle. Sitwellian characters held up to pitiless spotlighting, English, American, simple, complex, mostly frauds and hypocrites, in a de luxe hotel near Mount Sinai. On pleasure bent, they run into a miracle, see the 'graven tablets' which each interprets to his own interest, and for whose dissolution, all, save one, perish. Satirizes religion, education, morals, ignorance, innocence and vice. Dullish moments and not popular in appeal, but those who liked the earlier Sitwell will like it"--Kirkus review, Feb. 28th, 1934
