    Try a woman poet like Alice Meynell, Margaret Postgate Cole and May Wedderburn Cannan.

    I found this website useful when I studied War literature.....

    'Does it matter' is a fine poem, I like 'The death-bed' and 'The counter attack' too. 'The Glory of Women' would be a good one to look at.
