A War Poetry Collection

Dean Echenberg sends me the address of his website, which contains details of his very large collection of poetry by or about those who experienced war and then wrote about it. An impressive checklist, ranging from Sumerian times to the present day. He lists books about poetry, as well as actual books of verse, and there is certainly a great deal there that I did not know. Mr Echenberg hopes one day to house his five thousand volumes in an academic institution, where it can be used for research – but meanwhile I can’t help but wonder where he keeps them. My own more modest collection is already threatening to crowd mere humans out of the house. The address is http://www.warpoetrycollection.com/

    To get some idea of the size and scope of Mr. Echenberg’s collection, you can browse the books he’s cataloged at LibraryThing.
