Poet in the City presented a fascinating event which will showcase international poetry in remembrance of World War I

This was a special opportunity to remember and explore the poetry of World War One and celebrate the work of some of the World’s most renowned poets such as Seigfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, and Rupert Brooke.

From Apollinaire on the fields of France to Punjabi folk songs, from Russian voices to poems from the German trenches, we travel across frontiers and borders and discover how poetry plays an enduring role in the telling of these human stories.

Former Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion, spoking at the event joined by Poet and Translator, Sasha Dugdale, Amarjit Chandan, Stephen Romer and John Greening.
