6:30 - 8:00 pm, Sheerar Museum of Stillwater History, 702 S. Duncan. By the time the United States entered WWI in 1917, the conflict had already become horribly destructive, eventually resulting in millions of combatant deaths - including many talented English writers and artists. One fortunate survivor, after being declared dead of wounds he received, was Robert Graves, who went on to enjoy a brilliant 20th century literary career. These young men, often called "Trench Poets," had charged blissfully into the conflict, unaware of the devastation they would endure as the war settled into a stalemate and modern weaponry supplanted valor and tactics on the battlefield. Join Dr. R.E. Graalman, Jr. as he introduces us to this topic and a few of the notable poets and selections of their works, sometimes composed under harrowing conditions.
