War is kind by Stephen Crane( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War is Kind is a brief collection of short poems by Stephen Crane. This volume has been handsomely illustrated with Art Nouveau illustrations by Will Bradley. Crane's poetry is rarely anthologized, but that has nothing to do with its quality. As a poet, Crane broke from almost every poetic tradition and pioneered a style that was truly singular. He called his poems "lines," rarely gave them titles and eschewed rhyme, verse, stanzas and the popular subject matter of the day. For that reason, many dismiss his poems as irrelevant, but he anticipated many of the techniques that the Modernist poets would go on to explore in depth. Most of these poems are only a few lines long, but they pack a surprising punch
