In this lecture, we learn about how World War One was represented in the poetry that was written during 1914-1918. The major war poets such as Owen and Sassoon are included; but we also notice the minor but in their day far more popular poets such as Alice Meynell. At the heart of this lecture is an examination of the way in which the perceptions of several war poets were dramatically altered by their horrific experiences of trench warfare.
