The Words of War

This will be a look at the literature written by British writers during World War I. Readings will focus on British war poetry but we will also examine prose works: short stories, propaganda literature, journals, diaries, letters, and speeches. This is not a history of WWI class but, of course, literature is a result of history, and this class is definitely centered around a specific time. The words of those Britons who fought in The Great War are powerful and inspiring and should never be forgotten.

Instructor: Sue Nickels is a retired secondary English teacher with an M.A. in English from JMU. She also taught four years in the English Department and the College of Education at JMU, and her last four years in the classroom were spent teaching English in Cairo, Egypt.
