First Poems

The poems from our First World War anthology are, as I promise, glorious--and appreciated by many types of reader. Our class film Regeneration (& the novel which it dramatises) suggests the power that the poets still have on artistic imagination. Let us read the Rupert Brook poem 1914: Safety (29); the Owen poem Dulce et Decorum Est (141); and Sassoon's Redeemer (62) or the other mentioned in Wednesday class.
Very short; very potent.
