Written with the Bayonet
Soviet Russian Poetry of World War Two
First paperback edition. 23.5 × 15.5cm, 328pp.
Focusing on a wide range of poetry written between 1941 and 1945, this work explores Soviet poets' response to World War II. It also traces the influence of Stalinist culture, and departures from literary conventions established in the pre-war years. In a chronological survey, the poets' immediate reaction to the events of the war is placed in its historical and literary-political context.
