  • Summary: This feature-length documentary delves into the experience of war through powerful images and the words of poets -- unknown and world-famous.

  1. Voices in Wartime is a stirring testament to the search for meaning.
  2. 80
    A thoughtful, provocative exploration of the ways poets have dealt with the experience of battle throughout history.
  3. The words more than hold their own against the pictures.
  4. Rick King's stirring documentary Voices in Wartime is not, as you might guess from the title, a compilation of soldiers' battlefield letters to their families back home. This intense little film is about poetry, and not just Homer's "Iliad."
  5. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    A history of verse is laid alongside that of warfare, and the ways in which they are braided together proves fascinating.
  6. 50
    Its pedagogical tone perfectly suits it for viewing in classrooms.
