Guest: Jarica Watts, Professor of English, Brigham Young University November marks 100 years since the end of World War I. “The Great War” changed perceptions of war among a generation of young men who went off to fight dreaming of glory and returned traumatized by the horrors of trench warfare. Their trauma reflected in the literature of the day, too. Especially in the poetry written by soldiers at the front.
