Book commemorates anniversary of WWI poem

The Campus Bookstore has selected a collection of essays on war, loss and remembrance commemorating the 100th anniversary of the writing of Canada’s most famous poem as its Book of the Week.

In Flanders Fields: 100 Years brings together 13 contributors—historians, novelists and poets—to contemplate the evolving meaning of John McRae’s 1915 poem; the man who wrote it and the World War I setting from which it emerged; its themes of valour, grief and remembrance; and the iconic image of the poppy.

Designed in full colour with archival and contemporary images, In Flanders Fields: 100 Years will reflect and illuminate the importance of art in how we process war and loss. Originally priced at $35, it will sell this week for $25.
