Brothers' War: Civil War Voices in Verse based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Not for kids! There are some gruesome Brady pictures in here, plus there was a poem with a verse about "stopping a bullet with my face" or something. Otherwise a great book, but for older kids. There are little synopsis next to the poems about the aspect of the Civil War they were writing about.
The Brothers' War Civil War Voices in Verse by J. Patrick Lewis is poetry about the Civil War. The photographs that go with the poems are stunning, but many of the poems left we wanting to feel more. Lewis wants you to feel something, but I felt more of an emotional impact reading Walt Whitman's poetry. Also Lewis neglected the voices of women and children who were also affected by the war.
