John McCrae : A Canadian doctor who treated soldiers on the Western Front. He threw away the poem after first writing it, only fishing it out of his bin the next day. In Flanders Fields : features the alliteration that helps structure this poem throughout. Poppies were also associated with sleep (opium being a poppy derivate) and McCrae, being a doctor, would have been conscious of this: the idea of sleeping under the poppies is revived in the last lines. the poem turns, surprisingly, to the dead, who are given voice by the poet. This is a powerful and emotive turn, a direct address of the living by the fallen.
John McCrae (1872–1918) was born in Guelph, Ontario, on November 30, 1872. He was awarded a fellowship in biology at the University of Toronto, where he studied medicine like his brother before him. He graduated in 1898 and the following year interned under William Osler at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1899, he accepted a fellowship in pathology at Montreal’s McGill University under Professor John George Adami. Taking leave from his studies in December 1899, McCrae joined the 2nd Contingent of Canadian soldiers volunteering for the war in South Africa, as Lieutenant of the 1st Artillery Brigade. He served in South Africa through 1900, returning to Canada in January 1901. McCrae resumed his work as a physician, first becoming resident pathologist at the Montreal General Hospital, and later practising as a clinician at both the Royal Victoria and Alexandria hospitals.
A Crown of Life - The World of John McCrae. The words of John McCrae, a soldier, doctor and poet, are called to mind every year on 11 November. It was his poem, In Flanders Fields, that was the inspiration for the poppy as a symbol of remembrance. This book charts the story of his life.
John McCrae was born in November of 1872 in Guelph, Ontario. His first written poetry, and interest in a military career, came while he was a young student and he enlisted in a militia field battery at seventeen years old. After McCrae graduated from Guelph Collegiate Institute he went on to study at the University of Toronto for three years and he would eventually attend the University of Toronto medical school. His medical studies were interspersed with his publishing of sixteen poems and a few short stories
Director: Robert Duncan. This feature documentary profiles poet John McCrae, from his childhood in Ontario to his years in medicine at McGill University and the WWI battlefields of Belgium, where he cared for wounded soldiers. Generations of schoolchildren have recited McCrae’s iconic poem In Flanders Fields, but McCrae and Alexis Helmer-the young man whose death inspired the poem-have faded from memory.
