Herbert Read: our forgotten war poet

Thursday, September 27, 2018
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Green Howards Officer, Herbert Read is commemorated in Poet’s Corner in Westminster Abbey.

So why is this poet, knight of the realm, art critic and writer so often overlooked in favour of the likes of Owen, Sassoon and Brooke?

Was it because this intriguing Yorkshireman was also an anarchist?

Carl Watts explores the military and cultural life and work of an extraordinary man.
