War and the Word

The history of the last century has been marked in particular by wars, the harbingers of globalisation.


Poetry has been marked by them, too: if the experience of one or another war has made the taking of a position before the phenomenon of war unavoidable, it is natural that the word of the poets has resolved to bespeak that experience and to express this taking of a position as never before. This activity reiterates the pertinence of some of the great poems of the 20th century, poems whose motive was war and its horrors. The interpretation of these poems will be accompanied by live music.
