    eBook Some Desperate Glory eBook ò Some Desperate MOBI Ñ army of northern virginia.co Ñ some pdf, desperate pdf, glory book, Some Desperate download, Some Desperate Glory PDF/EPUBNot the best book for beginners I don't think Egremont pushes you in uickly jumping from poet to poet in a couple of paragraphs sometimes in one paragraph and throwing in names and terms without clarifying who or what they are count how many times he calls Rupert Brooke a Fabian socialist without explaining what a Fabian socialist is I also thought the organization of his writing was a little wonky; 'Break of Day in the Trenches' is in the section for poems written in 1916 but Egremont doesn't explain its significance until the chapter supposedly dedicated to discussing 1917But for all that it's a smooth read not overly dense and the poem selection was near perfect Organizing the poetry by year means you can pick your favorite poet and follow him along from war's inception to end watching his work change darken or else abruptly cut off altogether if you've picked one of the several poets who didn't
