Counter-Attack and Other Poems collects some of Sassoon’s best war poems, all of which are harshly realistic laments or satires, writes Margaret B. McDowell in the Dictionary of Literary Biography. The later collection The War Poems of Siegfried Sassoon included 64 poems of the war, most written while Sassoon was in hospital recovering from his injuries. Public reaction to Sassoon’s poetry was fierce. Some readers complained that the poet displayed little patriotism, while others found his shockingly realistic depiction of war to be too extreme.

Siegfried Loraine Sassoon (1886-1967) who wrote under the pseudonyms Pinchbeck Lyre, Sigma Sashun and George Sherston was an English poet and author. He became known as a writer of satirical anti-war verse during World War I, but later won acclaim for his prose work. Sassoon was born in the village of Matfield, Kent, to a Jewish father and a Protestant English mother. He studied both law and history from 1905 to 1907 however, he dropped out of university without a degree and spent the next few years hunting, playing cricket, and privately publishing a few volumes of not very highly acclaimed poetry. Sassoon joined the military just as the threat of World War I was realised. He soon became horrified by the realities of war, and the tone of his writing changed completely. Sassoon's periods of duty on the Western Front were marked by exceptionally brave actions. The war had brought Sassoon into contact with men from less advantaged backgrounds, and he had developed Socialist sympathies. Amongst his famous works are The Daffodil Murderer (1913), The Old Huntsman (1917), Counter-Attack and Other Poems (1918), Picture-Show (1919) and The War Poems (1919).
  • Sasson is one of the great British War Poets, also referred to as soldier poets. This slender volume demonstrates why. His approach to the nature of war and the horror of trench warfare in World War One are crisp, often biting, and very blunt. Sassoon came into that war like so many others, certain of the rightness of the cause. But he had an open mind and was not blinded by propaganda, and soon came to believe there were far more dubious reasons behind the British war effort. Mostly, he came to see war itself as a horror devoid of glory, and as an officer he found it increasingly difficult to lead his men into battle, though he did. His poetry reflects this terrible conflict between duty and death. Sassoon, along with Robert Graves, Wilfred Owen, and Charles Sorley, is a brilliant poet on war and death. Owen and Sorley were killed during the war, along with so many other wonderful talents; those losses are all over the pages of this book.

  • Sassoon's poems have been generally considered inferior to those of Wilfred Owen, but I'm not sure I subscribe to that theory - some of them are unforgettably, conveyng not only the terror of the 14-18 war, but the bitterness felt by the troops agains their commanders, the politiians and profiteers at home. Nobody interested in the historyof World War One can afford not to read these poems.

  • Sassoon wrote most of these later in the war. MUCH darker,cynical and more introspective than his earlier work. Sassoon shows me that although wars may change a great deal, the interior/mental landscape of the warrior doesn't. My war was over 50 years later, but it's like he looked into my mind and articulated that for which I knew not the words.
    WELL worth the time it takes.

  • NOTHING gets us closer to life in the trenches that Siegfried's poems - they ARE WW1 even with the bullet in the last line

  • If you traveled some and saw the sights
    Then read his book, you'll find it right.

    But if at home you chose to stay
    You won't understand it anyway.

  • A must-read collection for any fans of Sassoon or World War 1 poetry.
