The War Poets

The Guardian has released a series of photo portraits called "Poets of the First World War" (November 10, 2008) and invites readers to take a look at The First World War Poetry Digital Archive.  Carol Rumens's poem of the week is "In the Trenches" by Isaac Rosenberg (November 10, 2008).  The Telegraph ran an article on Vera Brittain:  "Because You Died: Poetry and Prose of the First World War and After, by Vera Brittain," (November 4, 2008).

For the historians:  It is possible to use the British National Archives and The Cabinet Papers (1915-1978).
