    Every country has its capital, its center for governance and culture, but few capitals can lay claim to being known the world over. London is one of the few. Its sense and scale of history, its rich, diverse culture, its triumphs and its failures, and most of all, its people provide the world with an enduring mark of mankind striving to make good, to make better. In London: A City in Words, our poets, including William Blake, Thomas Hardy, Coventry Patmore, William Wordsworth, Matthew Arnold, Rudyard Kipling, and many others, collect their thoughts, gather their words, and deliver poems on the subject of our city.

    The award-winning author of The Yellow Birds returns with an extraordinary debut poetry collection. National Book Award finalist, Iraq war veteran, novelist, and poet Kevin Powers creates a deeply affecting portrait of a life shaped by war. Letter Composed during a Lull in the Fighting captures the many moments that comprise a soldier’s life: driving down the Texas highway; waiting for the unknown in the dry Iraqi heat; writing a love letter; listening to a mother recount her dreams. Written with evocative language and discernment, Powers’ poetry strives to make sense of the war and its echoes through human experience. Just as The Yellow Birds was hailed as the “first literary masterpiece produced by the Iraq war” (Los Angeles Times), this collection will make its mark as a powerful, enduring work.

    This proud nation with its long history—sometimes rough, hewn from bleak landscapes, and sometimes gently soft from its comforting voices—has produced a long succession of artists and poets. In the latter category, Louis MacNeice most probably stands pre-eminent; his words and phrasing are on a plane few can equal and most are in awe of. But in this volume we do put forward others who have their own words and voice to add to this rich tapestry—Wilfred Owen, Henry Vaughan, George Herbert, and Edward Thomas amongst them.
