Last Two Months of Anthem for Doomed Youth at the Imperial War Museum

A major exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, the largest of its kind ever mounted to illustrate the life and work of twelve soldier poets of World War One, is now into the final two months of its run.

The exhibition, Anthem for Doomed Youth, runs until 27 April 2003, and includes displays of uniforms, medals, manuscripts and many other personal items of the twelve poets which include famous names such as Edmund Blunden, Rupert Brooke, Robert Graves, Wilfred Owen and Julian Grenfell.

An accompanying book, Anthem for Doomed Youth, has been written by John Stallworthy, one of Wilfred Owen’s biographers, and is currently available from Constable and Robinson.
