The Great Dictator
I found this video that Charlie Chaplin did from his film The Great Dictator, in my email this morning. It is a very impassioned speech and the person who sent it stated the speech reminded them of Wilfred Owen the great romantic poet. I has the great pleasure of studying romantic poetry this Summer with Professor Emeritus Micheal Thorpe. I was once again was stuck by how war was an constant theme and the woes of the new age of the industrial revolution and the suffering it brought. It's an important message.
