GENE BARO , HUGH DICKSON TED HUGHES , ZÉLIE MORRIS
When Ernest Hemingway used John Donne's phrase ' No man is an island ' as part of the epigraph for his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, he was expressing the sense of mutual involvement felt by many participants in the Spanish Civil War. The second world war, which began twenty-five years ago today, was everyone's war more emphatically than any great conflict had been before. From Dunkirk to Hiroshima, from the London blitz to the Nazi concentration camps, there was a total involvement of members of all the fighting nations. In tonight's programme. the response of imaginative writers to the war is presented in verse and prose from six countries.
