Granny Goose Books
(Ottawa, ON, Canada)

Book Description McGill Queens University Press, Montreal, 2009. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. This book looks almost new. The interior is crisp and fresh. The top corner of the rear end paper has been clipped off, but this is the only flaw. The grey covers are fresh, with just a hint of wear at tips and corners. The dust jacket is not price-clipped, and shows no wear. The jacket is now in a protective mylar cover. An excellent copy. Synopsis: "David Williams shows how classic Great War literature, including work by Remarque, Owen, Sassoon, and Harrison, was symptomatic of a cultural crisis brought on by the advent of cinema. He argues that images from Geoffrey Malins' hugely popular war film The Battle of the Somme (1916) collapsed social, temporal, and spatial boundaries, giving film a new cultural legitimacy, while the appearance of writings based on cinematic forms of remembering marked a crucial transition from a verbal to a visual culture. By contrast, today's digital media are laying the ground for a return to Homeric memory, whether in History Television, the digital Memory Project, or the interactive war museum.".
