So much was written during these times and in many formats. This is a fascinating exploration on the theme.
We explore the various roles that the written and spoken words played during these turbulent times, drawing on examples from a diverse range of private and public forums. Although a particular focus is placed on poetry, we also consider private letters, personal accounts, published books, newspapers, trench journalism, propaganda, posters and even popular songs of the day.
