Voices in Wartime examines how poetry and war have been intertwined from ancient Babylonia to the conflicts of the 20th century and the current war in Iraq. The stirring words of poets of the past – Homer, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Walt Whitman and Shoda Shinoe from Hiroshima – are combined with the more recent voices of a Vietnam vet, poets in war-torn Baghdad, and a poet whose family experienced the devastating war in Biafra. This event is offered in collaboration with the Center for Documentary Arts.
