This blog is intended to help A-level students to understand and appreciate World War One poetry. To read more about the background of the blog, please read my Welcome to readers.
I lead the A-level English Literature course at Southfields Community College.
In a previous life I gained an MA in literary studies at Royal Holloway, University of London; incredibly, they even let me study for a doctorate on H.G. Wells there. I’m not an academic expert in First World War literature, but I hope that I can pass on what I do know– and, when I’m in the dark, I’ll point you in the direction to those who know more.
