Beschreibung:

During the First World War and its immediate aftermath, hundreds of women wrote thousands of poems on multiple themes and for many different purposes. Women's poetry was published, sold (sometimes to raise funds for charities as diverse as 'Beef Tea for Troops' or 'The Blue Cross Fund for Warhorses'), read, preserved, awarded prizes and often critically acclaimed. Tumult and Tears will demonstrate how women's war poetry, like that of their male counterparts, was largely based upon their day-to-day lives and contemporary beliefs. Poems are placed within their wartime context. From war worker to parent; from serving daughter to grieving mother, sweetheart, wife; from writing whilst within earshot of the guns, whilst making the munitions of war, or whilst sitting in relative safety at home, these predominantly amateur, middle-class poets explore, with a few tantalising gaps, nearly every aspect of women's wartime lives, from their newly public often uniformed roles to their sexuality.
