What were some famous poems that were written during World War 2?
There is an absolute wealth of famous poems written during the
war. Perhaps a better question would be for a list of poets who
have works in the public sector, to name just a few:
- Wilfred Owen
- W H Auden
- T S Eliot
- Laurence Binyon
- Siegfried Sassoon
- Humbert Wolfe
- Richard Aldington
But of course, there are many more that can be accessed in the form of Anthologies and other books from any decent on-line book store.
Poe did not write books. He wrote poems and short stories for the most part. 'The Raven' was and is by far his most famous poem, and 'The Gold-Bug' was his most famous short story during his lifetime. 'The Black Cat' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart' are two of his other famous short stories through the years. An anthology like 'The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe' would contain both short stories and poems…
The romantic poems are not 'romantic' (lovey-dovey mushy stuff) like most people think. They are actually a collection of poems that were written during the romantic era (the 1800s). The most famous of the poems are by Lord Byron, William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Percy Bysshe Shelly and John Keats. The poems mainly focus on nature and/or revolution as inspired by the French Revolution, Industrial Revolution and the American War of Independence
