Scars Upon My Heart is a poetry anthology collected by Catherine Reilly which focuses upon poetry written by women during the First World War often from the wives and girlfriends who had loved ones serving in Europe as well as the poems from those who had lost loved ones. Many of the poets were little-known before their publication in the anthology. The title of the anthology is taken from a Vera Brittain poem called To My Brother in which she states: "Your battle wounds are scars upon my heart". This anthology includes poems such as 'Perhaps' by Vera Brittain.
