War of the Words: World War I Poetry Anthology | KS3 Poetry



In 2014, the BBC released a documentary on the soldier-poets of the Somme (I think it was last shown in 2017). I’ve constructed an anthology of some of the poems covered and included ‘big questions’ to go with them. The quotations I’ve used beneath are from the documentary itself.
