A timely contribution to studies of the poetry of the First World War, Perspectives on World War I Poetry is part of Bloomsbury's multiple-genre 'Great War' collection, whose aim, in the centenary year of the outbreak of the First World War, is to provide a 'one-stop resource for those seeking to understand the Great War and its impact' (see: thegreatwar). As the book's preface sets out, its aims are primarily pedagogical and equalizing: to bring to the foreground of the study of the poetry of the First World War numerous relevant literary theories, while also dispelling the notion that literary theory is difficult or daunting. Many so-called 'simple' introductions to the study of literature through literary theory confuse rather than clarify through their attempts at simplification or accessibility, but Evans's study, perhaps because he chooses a specific literary focus for the theoretical exposition, is not one of these. * Heather H.
