This November will mark the centennial of the Armistice that ended the Great War (1914-1918). The English poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon wrote many of the war’s best-known poems that stunningly revealed how the war affected soldiers on the front lines. Participants will read and discuss a dozen or so of these poets’ works.
Doug Rose taught War and Literature at SUNY Canton for over 20 years and previously offered “Poetry of the Great War” for SOAR in the Fall of 2012.
NOTE: Poems will be given out in class and/or posted on the SOAR website, if possible.
