In her second book, Voices from Stone and Bronze, Caroline Davies considers the war memorials of London, France and Wales. The poems bring to life those who fought and died and those who survived, including some of the sculptors who had themselves come through trench warfare to a changed world. Meticulously researched and deeply humane, these narrative poems apply a lyrical sensibility without sentimentalism http://www.carolinemdavies.co.uk/
