9780195021714: The Great War and Modern Memory (Galaxy Books)

In this classic work Paul Fussell illuminates the British experience on the Western Front from 1914 to 1918, focusing primarily on the literary means by which the Great War has been remembered, conventionalized, and mythologized. Drawing on the work of important wartime poets such as David Jones and Wilfred Owen, on the memoirs of Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves, and Edmund Blunden, and on numerous other personal records housed in the Imperial War Museum, this award-winning volume provides an intimate and intensely poetic account of an event that revolutionized the way we see the world. This book is intended for students, historians, andgeneral readers interested in the history of the Great War and its literature.
