Abstract

In Polish literature on the First World War, aristocratic estates, which played a central role in the creation of a national conditio heroica, were commonly described as locations for troop stationing by Polish military forces (Legiony Polskie). Based on a close examination of selected novels, stories, and poems that address the First World War, this chapter considers the material, emotional, and symbolic significance of the country house as a transitory locus for soldiers from the dual perspectives of spatial analysis and studies on masculinity.
