War Writing Since 1914 - Poetry Day 5

The power of propaganda, eh? I covered this when I was writing my transactional analysis in year one of the degree.  It is the power of language that interests me.

Interesting, because I compare it to the previous advertising of the Victorians in comparative peace time - which was full of information, lacking in buzz words etc.  Anyway, time to redraft/overhaul the essay. May look on JSTOR for a couple of essays, but must keep it short.

1,182, haha - looks like I have shortened it by five words or so, but I have edited and substantially rewrote the beginning.  Will tackle JSTOR tomorrow.
