9780198122807: Women's Writing on the First World War

Until now the impact of The First World War upon women writers has been less visible than that of their male counterparts. This anthology brings together women's writing about the War from the period 1914 to 1930. Letters, diary entries, and essays offer an interesting counterpoint to the novels and short stories through which women sought to encompass the extremes of wartime life.

Review:

`the volume offers multiple implicit comparisons to the numerous war writings by men ... this work will prove invaluable in offering leads and research suggestions and does much to redress the difficulty in approaching primary sources when looking beyond the standard war materials. It should prove useful in the classroom as well as the library. Highly recommended.' B. Adler, Choice, Sept. 00.

`this ground-breaking anthology brings to light many voices that have been forgotten or neglected over time ... a dauntingly wide array of perspectives on WW 1, from both sides of the fighting, and offering masterful reportage, narrative, and fictional accounts.' B. Adler, Choice, Sept. 00.

`Given the range of national, social and cultural standpoints displayed in the anthology, the moments of consensus and correspondece are striking, as are the absences. No poems, no popies, no Pilgrim's Progress. No sunrise over hell, no lunatic generals, no sing-song in the face of death. Though a number of the contributors are writing from the German side, they seem to be gazing from the same spot as the Englishwoman.' Glyn Maxell, TLS, 10/11/00.

`a very fine anthology of traumas and transformations.' Glyn Maxell, TLS, 10/11/00.

`fascinating anthology ... the book adds not only to our understanding of the conflict but also extends our conception of the term war writing. Especially poignant are the first-hand accounts written by nurses.' History Today
