The War Poets Association aims to promote interest in the work, life and historical context of poets whose subject is the experience of war. It is interested in war poets of all periods and nationalities, with the primary focus on conflicts since 1914 - mainly the First World War, The Spanish Civil War, the Second World War and Ireland.
There are several societies dedicated to individual war poets; the WPA aims to work with these to promote their activities and to provide an opportunity for them to join in events of general interest.
This website aims to be one of the primary resources on the Internet for research into and discussion of Twentieth Century international war poetry, and to provide a selection of useful links. If you would like to recommend links or help build the resource, please contact the editor at email@example.com.
This website includes biographies of some major war poets, written by experts for publication here. 'Mouse over' the images above to read the names of individual poets or click on an image to read a biography.
