Tutor: Andrew Humphries | Canterbury campus | £64
Examining mainly fiction, poetry and drama from or about the First
World War, this course invites you to read, act and discuss a range
of well-known authors and poets like Wilfred Owen and Siegfried
Sassoon as well as some lesser known. While the soldier’s experience is central, the roles played by women and by the Home Front will also be a focus. The course will also draw upon film and non-fiction material, art and music to put the literature into context and will involve opportunity to rehearse scenes from plays such as Sheriff’s Journey’s End or Joan Littlewood’s Oh What a Lovely War and to devise an improvised First World War scene.
This is aimed at anyone interested in the First World War who in its final centenary year wants to enjoy discussing and enacting literature about the event in an informal but informed setting.
