Path of the Paddle

Ikram Saeed from Canada keeps a blog called Path of the Paddle. If you’ve got the war on your mind, but you can’t take anymore news, check out his peice on war poetry. He’s pulled together a lot of good stuff, including poetic Rumsfeld declamations. He asks,

Why isn’t there famous modern English language war poetry? Is it because, in an age without mass conscription, poetic types don’t fight?

I think he’s onto something there…
