Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on one group of poets – namely women – who were often excluded from an understanding of the war, first studying the gendering of the literary history of World War I, and then discussing women, war, and writing. Its final part presents an account of how one might read the women war poets in light of present theories about mourning and within the present renaissance in World War I studies.

Keywords: women poets, World War I, gendering, literary history, theories on mourning, renaissance
