Poetry of the Empire
Please help us improve with this one minute survey (opens in a new tab)
World War One was a conflict of empire, not of nation. In this lecture Dr Simon Featherstone looks at four distinctive poets who provide a version of empire that is much more nuanced than the imperial rhetoric of the established canon.
Dr Simon Featherstone is Principal Lecturer in Drama Studies at De Montfort University with a specialism in postcolonial studies; Englishness; national identities; and war poetry.
