Undertones of war by Edmund Blunden( Book )

92 editions published between 1928 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Undertones of War, one of the finest autobiographies to come out of World War I, the acclaimed poet Edmund Blunden records his devastating experiences in combat. After enlisting at the age of twenty, he took part in the disastrous battles at the Somme, Ypres, and Passchendaele, describing them as "murder, not only to the troops but to their singing faiths and hopes." All the horrors of trench warfare, all the absurdity and feeble attempts to make sense of the fighting, all the strangeness of observing war as a writer-- of being simultaneously soldier and poet-- pervade Blunden's memoir. In steely-eyed prose as richly allusive as any poetry, he tells of the endurance and despair found among the men of his battalion, including the harrowing acts of bravery that won him the Military Cross
Charles Lamb by Edmund Blunden( Book )

32 editions published between 1954 and 1964 in 3 languages and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Lamb (1775-1834), essayist, poet, humorist, critic and letter-writer, has an enduring reputation for his early Tales from Shakespeare (1807), written in collaboration with his sister Mary, and his Essays of Elia , first published in the London Magazine . This thematic selection of Lamb's writings - essays, dramatic criticism, verse and letters - not only demonstrates his literary achievements; it forms a self-portrait of the writer: generous, amused, and gregarious, finding imaginative escape from grim circumstances in the teeming life of London and the theatre. The reader is drawn into the circle of Lamb's friends, enjoying the company of the most personal of English essayists. J.E. Morpurgo's introduction and notes set Lamb's writings in their contemporary context

Fall in, ghosts : selected war prose by Edmund Blunden( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<P style=""MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"" class=MsoNormal>Edmund Blunden moved among the ghosts of the Great War every day of his long life, having survived the battles of Ypres and the Somme. His classic prose memoir, Undertones of War , and his early edition of Wilfred Owen's poems were just two examples of the ways in which he sought to convey his war experience and to keep faith with his comrades in arms. His poetry is suffused by this experience, and he was haunted by it throughout his writing life, as the men with whom he had served gradually joined the ranks of the departed. This selection
