Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

After model analyses of a number of texts of all genres and from all periods of English literature we will explore various aspects of the First World War as represented in English Literature. We will not only consider contemporaneous texts but also works from the interwar period and the present. An analysis of these texts will offer insights into the diverse perspectives on "the war to end all wars" that have emerged over the years. In this course we will also explore the confusion of historical facts and myths engendered by the war, which literature itself promulgated, and that have become embedded in public awareness.
