Product Description

Tomorrow It Will All Run Backwards is a collection of war poetry that, in the words of Mario Petrucci, the Imperial War Museum’s Poet-In-Residence, is “direct, point-blank. Brett is concerned with parachuting us into seeing what he, with consistently unsentimental eyes, has seen.” Rich with allusions to literature and culture, the poems remind the reader that even education and civil society can do nothing to change the horrific nature of war itself. Through this book, Brett focuses the attention of the reader onto the implications of war. The imagery is often striking and the commentary subtle, tending to convey a world of twisted values, a world striking or even beautiful in its cruelty and insensitivity to everyone -civilians or soldiers- who become just part of the technology of war.
