Through his poetry, he expresses feelings of hope, fear, exhilaration, humiliation, hatred, and love for those left behind at home and on the battlefield. Noonan’s talk focused on some of the most powerful poems written during World War I. Her talk is part of the State Library and Museum of Connecticut History’s Third Thursday Brown bag Lunchtime Speaker Series.
