Abstract

Women’s poetry of the First World War has long been neglected by historiography and literary criticism. In 1981 the anthology edited by Catherine Reilly gave a decisive impulse to research. Suffragists, pacifists, nurses, but also ordinary women wrote poems to express their sense of loss, to keep the memory of their loved ones alive, to give voice to a personal and universal pain, to denounce the true face of a war that was cruelly striking civilians. The essay offers a few examples of female poetic creations and dwells on poems written by Margaret Sackville and Henriette Sauret.

Keywords

Women’s poetry. First World War. Feminism. Pacifism. Margaret Sackville. Henriette Sauret.
