News of War

Civilian Poetry 1936-1945

Rachel Galvin

  • Argues that even poems that do not directly comment on war can evoke civilian relationships to distant fighting
  • Examines the poetry of César Vallejo, W.H. Auden, Wallace Stevens, Raymond Queneau, Marianne Moore, and Gertrude Stein
  • Presents the idea that these poets experienced a crisis of conscience during wartime, which in turn significantly influenced their writing
