"A rich and full view of a period that combines important social critique and historical perspective, this volume also rescues a sizeable body of poetry from obscurity." B. Adler, Choice "Readers interested in revisonist narratives of modernism, intersections of culture and politics, or the history of dissent in the United States will welcome Mark Van Wienen's new study of American poetry during the Great War. This well-researched project explores a wide range of fascinating and original sources... ...this is a boldly polemical and original study that is certainly worth the attention of scholars of the twentieth century." Caren Irr, American Literature "...one of the best cultural studies of poetry I have ever read." American Studies
