This definitive volume will alter our understanding of the literature of World War I. New critical approaches have, over the last two decades, redefined the term "war literature" and its cultural legacy. Consisting, in equal measure, of essays by male and female scholars (from several different countries), and devoted to both familiar and lesser-known works, this book presents the many faces of Great War literary study at the millennium.

'Quinn and Trout's intelligent collection..continues the project of expanding and rehabilitating the concept of canon as applied to war literature.' - Choice
