Jane Potter on Woman’s Hour
On Friday 19 September 2014, Jane Potter, Senior Lecturer in Publishing, appeared on Woman's Hour to talk about women poets in the First World War. She was interviewed by Jenni Murray and they discussed poetry and the sense of loss felt by women at home. Margaret Postgate Cole, Mary Borden, and Jessie Pope were amongst the poets highlighted, and their poems ‘The Falling Leaves’, ‘The Song of the Mud’, and ‘The Call’ were read.
A Trustee of the Wilfred Owen Literary Estate, Jane is the author of Wilfred Owen: An Illustrated Life (Bodleian Library Publishing, 2014) and is currently working on a new edition of Owen's Selected Letters for Oxford University Press, due to be published in 2015.
