THE WAR POETS with Jane Clarke
3 October, 2018 @ 11:00 am
Award-winning poet, Jane Clarke, will give an overview of First World War poetry and will read from her own sequence of poems responding to one family’s experience of the war. The Mary Evans Picture Library in London invited Jane to work with the Auerbach archive which offers a unique insight into how the First World War affected this one family, in particular, Albert Auerbach, who died in action in 1918, and his sister Lucy, who survived the war and lived into the 1970s. Jane’s poems explore the meaning and impact of conflict and war, bearing witness to and honouring lives lost and maimed.
It will all be over one day, and what a day it will be, won’t it? – Albert Auerbach
