The First World War marks a turning point in modern history and culture. This volume offers critical overviews of the major literary genres and social contexts that define the study of the literatures produced by World War I. The volume comprises original essays by various scholars, who examine the impact of the war on various national literatures, principally Great Britain, Germany, France and the United States, before addressing the way the war affected Modernism, the European avant-garde, film, women's writing, memoirs, and of course the war poets. It concludes by addressing the legacy of the war for twentieth-century literature. The volume offers readers a chronology of key events and publication dates covering the years leading up to and including the war, and ends with a current bibliography of further reading organized by chapter topics.
