"lhe Minstrelsey of Peace." The National Lab-our Press, Limited (Man- chester and London) is publishing this week an Anthology of peace poetry, under the title of "The Minstrelsey of Peace," edited with notes and Introduction by J. Bruce Glasier. The volume consists of selections of notable verse in the English tongue, relating to peace, ranging from the Fifteenth Century to the present day, and include sabout 200 songs, shorter poems and extract's with some satirical verse. All the lead- ing poets, with but a few exceptions, are repre- sented, including Gower, Chaucer, Lindsay, Spencer, Shakespeare, Campion, Milton, Pope, Cowper, Blake, Burns, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Longfellow, Lowell, Whitman, Tennyson, Wil- liam Morris, and living writers. In his Intro- duction on Poetry and War and Paace ia English Poetry," the editor challenges the com- monly accepted idea that poetry is a "war-jade," and brings to witness the testimony of ancient and modern poetry. The volume is of great .literary and political interest, full of delight for lovers of poetry as well as of peace. We cannot imagine a more wel- come present for the Tourth Christmas of the war. The price is 5/- net, gilt edge, cloth (post „ free 5s. 3d.), may be ordered through the I.L.P. branch literature secretaries or local booksellers, or direct from the National Labour Press, Ltd., 30, Blackfriars-street, Manchester.
