Literature and the Great War 1914-1918

Randall Stevenson

Oxford Textual Perspectives

  • Offers a comprehensive assessment of Great War literature
  • Challenges established views of the literature of the period
  • Has topical appeal as we move towards the 100th anniversary of the Great War
  • Considers the whole literary period, including immediately pre-war authors and modernist imagination developing afterwards
  • Examines literature in the wider context of stresses of its times, including the pressures of propaganda, military and civilian life, and the difficulties of describing violence
