About "Britannia"[edit]

  • from Poetry Review V. 5 No. 2 July-Dec 1914:

"In this our second war number, we have the privilege of printing a patriotic poem by Florence Earle Coates, who has been described by the best authority as 'the leading living poet of the United States.' Mrs. Coates was among the Americans delayed in England by the outbreak of war, and on the eve of her departure she called on us with this contribution as an expression of her admiration and feeling for Great Britain, and appreciation of the kindness she had received when over here. We believe this poem to be the first on the war by an American writer of eminence to be published in this country."
