The Poetry of War(2)

In 2003, NPR's Weekend Edition presented a series of reports based on readings of war poetry ranging from the Iliad to World War I reflections. Listen to the readings, including a recording of Alfred, Lord Tennyson reading "The Charge of the Light Brigade," made by Thomas Edison. Other poems include Wilfred Owen's "Dulce et Decorum Est," "Walt Whitman's "O Captain, My Captain," and Thomas Buchanan Read's "Sheridan's Ride."
