The Remembered Dead: Poetry, Memory and the First World War

This year saw the extraordinary The Remembered Dead by Sally Minogue and Andrew Palmer published by Cambridge University Press. In a period where so much has been published about WWI, this intensely researched book offers new explorations of the poets of that traumatic time and also those poets who would reflect back to that period in their writing. Minogue and Palmer through their collaboration consider the complexity of "how to remember, and commemorate, those killed in conflict". 

I was honoured to have an image made as part of my 2014 project on WWI memorialisation and the face, selected for this important publication's cover. The image Broken Faces II is a Polaroid lift and a detail from Broadstairs war memorial.


The book is now available from CUP or any good bookshop.
