Abstract

"The Great War of 1914-1918 marks a turning point in modern history and culture. This Companion offers critical overviews of the major literary genres and social contexts that define the study of the writings produced by the First World War. It examines the impact of the war on various national literatures, and on modernism, the European avant-garde, film, women's writing, and notably on the memoirs, novels, and poetry of Britain. The volume features a chronology and guide to further reading, and concludes by addressing the legacy of the war for subsequent literary and popular culture."--Jacket.
