This week's Books of the Week are Janis P Stout's Coming Out of War (University of Alabama Press) and Severin Schroeder Wittgenstein (Polity). Stout probes the work of Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, and Randall Jarrell and challenges the belief that war poetry was written only by men by examining the writings of Rose Macaulay, Marianne Moore, Elizabeth Bishop, and Gwendolyn Brooks. Schroeder's book is a clear account of Wittgenstein's philosophy, framed against his biography.
