Titel 2 Poetry of WW1

War has always inspired poetry.  It has been around for as long as there have been wars, one of the oldest examples being ‘The Illiad’ by an ancient Greek poet called Homer.  This poem depicted the Trojan wars (and the famous Trojan Horse) and was composed around 750 BC, roughly well over two thousand years ago.  

War poetry brings history to life by telling us the private thoughts of men and women who have experienced conflict between nations.

Some of the most famous poems and plays written in the English language about war were ‘Henry V’ ‘by Shakespeare, about the battle of Agincourt in 1415.

However, World War One saw a complete change in the way wars were fought and the attitudes towards them.  More advanced technology saw death on a huge scale and there were nearly a million British casualties. In total over 8.5 million men were killed during the ‘Great War’.  This in turn created a new breed of poets such as Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, who wrote in protest of the war and its dire conditions. This concentrates on the poetry written during the First World War for this reason.

Titel 4 Mrs Dalloway

Mrs. Dalloway is considered a central work in Virginia Woolf’s oeuvre and in the modernist canon. It not only addresses historical and cultural issues such as war, colonialism, class, politics, marriage, sexuality, and psychology but also reimagines the novel form. Moreover, Mrs. Dalloway continues to grow in its influence and visibility, inspiring adaptations in film, theater, print, and other media.
This theme will focus on Woolf's novel Mrs Dalloway, the context and the style of writing, as well as, the contextualizing of this key modernist text in the classroom.
We will discuss the novel’s narrative form and interpret it using perspectives from cultural studies, feminism, or queer theory as well of her style of writing.

Points of interest, which will be discussed:

British Literature
Analysis
Feminist and Gender Studies
Time
