  War poets Monday 30 July 2001  
Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen and Isaac Rosenberg produced an enduring body of poetry in which they commemorated and protested against the trench experience of World War One.

But what about the women poets? Have they been excluded from the literary canon because they didn't fight at the front?
Sheila finds out why the male poets can only tell half the story of the war and is joined by Michele Fry of the Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Higher Education.
Michele will be giving a paper at a conference on Women's Issues and World War I at University College Northampton from 31st July to 4th August. Please click on the link for details of the conference.
