Description

“When all this is over”: Poetry and the First World War

Award-winning poet, Jane Clarke, will give an overview of poetry from the First World War and will read from her own sequence of poems responding to one family’s experience of the war. The Mary Evans Picture Library in London invited Jane to work with the Auerbach archive of letters, photos, documents, drawings and other items which offer a unique insight into how the First World War affected the members of this one family, in particular, Albert Auerbach, who died in action in 1918, and his sister Lucy, who survived the War and lived on into the early 1970s.
