Bronte country revisited, a place that has stood still in time....The Parsonage at the top of the main cobbled street and flanked by the church and cemetary and school has been a museum to the Brontes. Patrick Bronte, the curate, outlived his son Bramwell and three daughters, Emily, Anne and Charlotte. The famous daughters had written a book each that eventually found fame in literary circles and had they not died young, who knows how many more classics we would have today. The Brontes lived with their servants like one big family.

Wilfred Owen & Rupert Brooke are my favourite First World War poets. Brooke died of fever in the aegean sea whilst travelling to Gallipoli and was buried on a small Greek Island. His poems only touched on war whilst Wilfred Owen witnessed the horrors of trench warfare and his powerful poems captured this. Wilfred was killed along the Somme before armistice day. Michael Hemmings reads his poems.
