Mixing Memory & Desire

Why Literature Can't Forget the Great War

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Brian Kennedy

The last soldier who saw trench action in the Great War died in 2009. With his passing, all direct memory of the horror of that war ceased—memory became history. But Brian Kennedy argues that our collective need to grieve the horrors of the Great War still remains. In this wide-ranging book, he looks at a variety of fiction recently written about World War I, from Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse to Pat Barker’s Regeneration and many others.
