Reflections on War Poems he's Narrated Phillip J Mather @BritTexVoice #war #WW1 #poetry #poems #nar…
I have long pondered upon the global impact of The ‘Great’ War and the massive social upheavals wrought in such a short period of time. The 100 year anniversary of the start of World War One prompted me to revisit some of the poetry I remembered from childhood – the well-known ones from Owen and Sassoon et al, but when I started Googling for other verses, I encountered many that I did not know. The emotions depicted range from patriotism & jingoistic stoicism to horror, disgust and futility. I’ve thus far published only a small range [17 to date] but fully intend to continue publishing individual poems that move me or that I feel strike a different chord. Ultimately, I’ll stitch them together into an anthology.
