I’m looking at World War I articles I’ve bookmarked over the last few years, only to find that some are no longer available.  One that still is available is one that talks of this being the time to introduce people to Britain’s war poets.  So while we’re waiting for the next installment of Tim Dayton’s post on American war poets, here’s a teaser.

By the way, for the librarians–in particular–who may be looking for WWI programming, there certainly is no shortage of literary material that can be examined.
