Login for pricing

Testament of Warcompares the English-language poetry and fiction of the First World War with that written in German, French, Italian and to a lesser extent Danish, Flemish, Hungarian, Portuguese and Russian. It also looks at how the war was experienced and depicted by visual artists. The author discusses what sort of people, in what sort of physical, psychological and social conditions, wrote about the war, or painted it; how they handled the challenge of describing their experiences with honesty; what literary and artistic techniques they employed; how other forms of creative talent were fostered by the war; and how far memoirs of the war prepared the way for the next one.
