WWI poetry readings

Here are three short poems from our Penguin edition to have read for next Monday's class, February 2nd.

Please do keep in mind that the poetry is for our pleasure, enrichment & profit: that is to say, the desultory poetic engagement in the course is not conducted with any blighting eye to grades....
    • "1914: The Soldier" by Rupert Brooke, p. 108.
    • "The Mother (Written after reading Rupert Brooke's sonnet 'The Soldier'" by
      May Herschel-Clark, p.109.
    • "Battle (Eve of Assault: Infantry Going down to Trenches)" by Robert
      Nichols, p.118.
