With only eight months left in the war, poet Louis Untermeyer (1885 1977) asked:

"Why has no poet... emerged [from this war] to stir the heart and burn into the mind?... Why are there no names to set against Rupert Brooke, Alan Seeger, Robert Graves, Wilfred Owen, Siegfrid Sassoon and other World War I poets?"

In his 1970s essay, "Where Are the War Poets", critic Paul Fussell (1924 2012) answered Untermeyer's question:

"If the poets of 1914 - 1918 marched briskly away in innocence, those of 1939 - 1945 slouched unillusioned toward fatality, adept already at understanding evil and expecting nothing."

The writer Harry Brown is mentioned in this article, you can read about him here...
