The First World War Poetry Digital Archive

an online collection of primary material from the major poets of the period, and features a number of hand-written manuscripts

The heart of the The First World War Poetry Digital Archive is a collection of primary material from the major poets of World War One, including Wilfred Owen, Isaac Rosenberg, Robert Graves, Vera Brittain and Edward Thomas. Alongside digitised manuscripts of their handwritten poems, the site also allows you to explore the letters, diaries, photographs and a detailed biography of each writer. It further contextualizes the War through collections of photographs, audio clips, films and publications.

The collection also features a  range of multimedia artefacts from the Imperial War Museum and a set of specially developed educational resources, which are released under Creative Commons and are free to be used by teachers and learners.
