Shattering terrain and lives, the First World War challenged the representative power of words, maps, and visual art. This book tells the untold story of literary responses, showing how modernist fictional topographies by Ford Madox Ford, Rebecca West, Joseph Conrad, Virginia Woolf, and others shaped the meaning of the war and offered reconstructions of self and culture. Restoring their fiction to a context of spaces and places recorded in a wealth of previously neglected archival materials, this innovative study ranges across literature, cartography, geography, and art history to reorient our knowledge of modernism, revealing its promise of healing and redemption.

About the Author:

Mark D. Larabee is an Assistant Professor of English at the United States Naval Academy, where he teaches modern British and world literature. He is active in the Joseph Conrad Society of America and has published articles on Conrad and Ford Madox Ford.

Review:

"This comparative strategy produces a series of refreshing and innovative readings . . . Larabee's methodology succeeds largely due to his impressive grasp of battlefield conditions during World War I and British military history." --Claire Barber, Modern Fiction Studies

"a suggestive, well researched, highly readable book that offers an interesting insight on the development of British fiction through the intertwining of mapping, a new sense of experiencing and describing reality, and the trauma of the Great War" --Juan Herrero-Senés, Studies in the Novel

"insightful and visionary . . . Larabee proves his claims multiple times over . . . this book condenses a valuable and fascinating intersection of the Great War and the modernist sense of space and place for scholars of history, literature, cultural studies, political science, and beyond" --Darcy Lewis, Joseph Conrad Today

"an innovative study of literature, cartography and geography that demonstrates the power of modernism to both heal and redeem. Larabee's eloquently written, sophisticated study is a scholarly work of considerable magnitude." --Jane Mattisson, English Studies

"a valuable contribution to the scholarship on World War I and modernism in its broad examination of war and pre-war culture and its new focus on the landscape of war." --Celia M. Kingsbury, Conradiana
