The Cheer-Up Book of Wounded Soldier by Evan Kennedy (2007)

The Cheer-Up Book of Wounded Soldiers

Dirty Swan Projects

Much that can be said of this project is on the blog for Dirty Swan Projects. As conceptual art, it might work. My grandfather served in World War I so I came to this project with an open mind. However, the flags for all the voices is a bit confusing and the poetry is equally confusing. All this may well fit into the work that Dirty Swan does, and their heart might be in the right place (check out the blog for the book itself, all proceeds go to a school established in 1915 for WWI soldiers - The Cheer-Up blog) but I must admit I didn't get it.
