Voices in Wartime

( 1 )

Overview

Poetry has long been a medium that has communicated the concerns of the heart and mind during times of crisis, and one subject that has motivated many poets to reach for their pen is war. Many of the world's great poets have written eloquently about the violence and madness of armed conflict, among them Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Wilfred Owen, Sherman Pearl, and Siegfried Sassoon among many others, and in 2003, when Laura Bush invited a group of poets to visit the White House for a symposium on American ...

Overview

Poetry has long been a medium that has communicated the concerns of the heart and mind during times of crisis, and one subject that has motivated many poets to reach for their pen is war. Many of the world's great poets have written eloquently about the violence and madness of armed conflict, among them Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Wilfred Owen, Sherman Pearl, and Siegfried Sassoon among many others, and in 2003, when Laura Bush invited a group of poets to visit the White House for a symposium on American verse, author Sam Hamill responded by founding an activist group called Poets Against the War, and persuaded many of the participants to contribute verse that denounced American military policy. Filmmaker Rick King has examined the link between poetry and anti-war protest in the documentary Voices in Wartime, which looks at how many writers have used their poems as a vehicle of protest, the events that promoted poets to speak out, and how the tragic consequences have inspired both experienced and novice writers alike.

    Poetry as the Healing Force in Time of War - and After

    VOICES IN WARTIME is a documentary that has many aspects: it is an important investigation into how poets have responded to war from the Civil War through the two World Wars, Korean and Vietnam Wars and it is an homage to the fallen and to those who have been permanently damaged by war's dissection of the psyche, whether that be called combat fatigue, shell shock, battle rattle or the now accepted term Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. One has only to read the works of Walt Whitman, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Langston Hughes to find the core of this deeply moving project and film. Filmmaker Rick King has created a platform for which poets and commentators, scholars and photographers and explores the close relationship between anti-war protest and the poetry that has grown out of such feelings. This film is not a compendium of works praising Old Glory or making the world safe for democracy: this is a conversation among poets and their works with newsreel footage and stills of the wars of our past and present, thoughts that descry the atrocities of war and the rage it invokes. It is difficult to watch, but it is important to absorb. This is the portal through which author Sam Hamill is seen organizing the activist group, Poets Against the War. And the impact is strong.Not all of the poetry read is great and much of it comes from the pens of the untrained. But all of the works and voices and images in King's film cannot help but touch the heart and the conscience. It needs to be seen. Grady Harp
