International Reflective Writings

Assembling this section of the Arts Sector pages is a tribute to Lucy Dougall whose monumental book, War and Peace in Literature: Prose, Drama and Poetry Which Illuminate the Problem of War inspired these pages that follow.  The tagline of the Charter for Compassion is peace starts here.  For the Charter, peace is an absence of war and Lucy’s work helps us focus on the end goal of our work.

Lucy Dougall is the author of Orkney Days (c2000 Puget Sound Press), War/Peace Film Guide (3rd Edition c1980, World Without War Publications), and War and Peace in Literature (c1982, World Without War Publications). A lifelong Quaker peace activist, Dougall has spent years working with organizations includng The American Friends Service Committee and The World Without War Council. Hiking the wilderness beaches and coastal mountains of the Pacific Northwest, where she has lived for over 50 years, has given Lucy Dougall a deep appreciation for the outdoors. The poetry in Migrations reflects this connection to the natural world, as well as her love of family and faith in the human community.
