FALLEN POETS: EDWARD THOMAS & HEDD WYN

 

 

One hundred years ago two poets were killed in battle during the Great War: Hedd Wyn and Edward Thomas.  Born over fifteen years and two hundred miles apart, they are connected by Wales, poetry, nature and the War.  

Hedd Wyn is known as the ‘Poet of the Black Chair’ after he posthumously won the chair at the Birkenhead National Eisteddfod for his ode ‘Yr Arwr’.  Edward Thomas is often referred to as one of the most important poets of the twentieth century, even though his whole poetic output was created in the two years prior to his death.  In this exhibition we celebrate their life, their work and their legacy.
There will be an opportunity to see the original manuscripts of Hedd Wyn’s famous ode ‘Yr Arwr’ (The Hero)  and memories of his friend and fellow soldier, J.B. Thomas, about their time in the Army, as well as the way his story has inspired writers, poets and filmmakers.
