The Great War in the Magazines

Ann-Marie Einhaus, formerly of Durham University and now at Northumbria University, explores the Great War as represented in magazines of the time.How did magazine editors deal with the first modern “total war”? And how did readers first encounter poets who are now household names? This lecture takes Siegfried Sassoon as a starting point, before considering the publication of some lesser-known First World War poetry in modern and popular magazines.

This podcast was recorded as part of a lecture series to accompany Outrageously Modern!, an exhibition of avant-garde magazines at Durham’s Palace Green Library.A second podcast, on the arts and literature quarterly The White Review, is also available to download from this website.
