9:06 World War One book club - The war poets (Part 1 of 3)
The first in a series of three discussions exploring the legacy of World War One writing. Made in association with The New Zealand Book Council, with support from Victoria University of Wellington, the series features New Zealand literary commentators Kate Camp, Harry Ricketts, Jane Stafford and special guests discussing and dissecting favourite writings on the war – from poetry to fiction, diaries to graphic novels.
The trio is joined by Dave Armstrong to examine the power and appeal of the war poets. Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen and their contemporaries began as radical debunkers, but have they become comfortable clichés of war?
