Of Love and War: New and Selected Poems by Vernon Scannell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Vernon Scannell is undoubtedly one of the most important poets of the Second World War, a fact that is reflected in his critical acclaim and popular appeal. Of Love and War contains a selection, made by the author himself, of the best of his previously published poetry on the themes of love and war, along with a number of new poems. This combination presents the reader with a rich and enjoyable volume of work. As described in the Sunday Telegraph, Scannell's poems are carefully crafted: 'Scannell is one of what seems to be a vanishing breed, a poet of technical accomplishment who understands that poetry, like the other arts, is a craft as well' The poems in Of Love and War explore all aspects of human love and conflict in a wide range of ways - sardonic, celebratory, tender and bittersweet.
