Contributed | Beacon WWI poetry program set COSHOCTON - Jeremy Glazier, Associate Professor of English at Ohio Domini- can University, will present Anthem for Doomed Youth: Great Poetry from the Great War at the Johnson-Humrick- house Museum on Monday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. Th e First World War produced some of the most memorable and enduring poetry of the 20th century. From the early, exuberant verses of Rupert Brooke - full of youthful patrio- tism and optimism - to the later, more cynical poetry of Siegfried Sassoon, Rudyard Kipling, Wilfred Owen, and others who lived to see the war drag on and the death toll rise, this program will highlight key authors and quintes- sential themes. Professor Glazier will be sharing the most important touch- stones for understanding these signif- icant expressions of humanity in the grip of the most devastating confl ict the world had ever seen. Anthem for Doomed Youth: Great Poetry from the Great War will be an unforgettable eve- ning as participants explore notable poetry from the Great War. Th e program will take place in the museum’s special exhibit gallery where an exhibit of more than 150 WWI posters will be on display. Th e posters, printed between 1915 and 1919, represent the propaganda eff orts of the United States, Britain, France and Germany. Th ey cover a variety of topics ranging from enlistment, conservation and government loans to troop entertainment. Posters were designed to entice citizens young and old alike to join the war eff ort, appeal- ing to their emotional nature with beautiful illustrations, simple art or printed words or harsh, nightmarish depictions of the enemy. Each poster was so fi nely crafted that many prints of the era were preserved as pieces of art, surviving a century. Jeremy Glazier is a poet, essayist, and two-time recipient of the Ohio Arts Council’s Individual Excellence Award in Criticism. A 1993 graduate of Ridge- wood High School, he earned his bach- elor’s degree at Wittenberg University and his master of fi ne arts at Columbia University. He is associate professor of English at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, where he teaches cours- es on Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, and Chaucer - as well as a course in the literature of World War I. He has written for “Chicago Review” and the “Los Angeles Review of Books,” and his poems have appeared in “Kenyon Review,” “Antioch Review,” and many other journals. His poem “In the Age of Monsanto, Virgil Reconsiders the Conundrum of the Bees” was selected for inclusion in New Poetry from the Midwest 2016.
