In honor of the Armistice centenary, immerse yourself in a rich visual experience of World War I through an artful interpretation of three soldier’s poems, ranging from a rousing calls-to-arms, to a sobering realistic nature poem, to a famous dramatization of terror and disillusionment. The Poetry Foundation and Manual Cinema present this animated short to bring these relevant poems to life.
