The second battlefield

Women, modernism and the First World War

Angela K. Smith

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Explores written representations of First World War experience, produced by a variety of different women
  • Drawing on a wealth of unpublished material, in the form of diaries and letters, the book examines the way in which the variety of new roles undertaken by women triggered a search, conscious or otherwise, for appropriate new forms of expression
  • Through the twin approaches of literary criticism and historical exploration, the book contributes an important new strand to the scholarship of women and war
  • Expands current notions of how modernisms should be defined
  • This volume compliments Angela K
  • Smith's 1999 publication, Women's writing of the First World War: An anthology (MUP)
