Women of the First World War

Female Poets of the First World War

  • 17 September 2014 From 6:30pm

When we think of poetry of the First World War, it is primarily soldier poets such as Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon who come to mind. Judith Palmer, Director of the Poetry Society, will introduce and read some of the women’s poetry that emerged from the conflict: telling the story of poets who worked as nurses or ambulance drivers, and those who waited and mourned for brothers, lovers and sons.
