About this product
- DescriptionThe Great War did t only mark the history of the twentieth century: to a large extent, the conflict also affected culture and literature in Europe and the rest of the world. This collection of essays aims to provide the reader with a broad and transdisciplinary perspective on the cultural and political impact of the Great War. Using a comparative approach and focusing on Catalonia and Spain, this volume reflects the ermous variety of representations of the 'theatre of war' in both neutral and belligerent countries, causing a significant rejuvenation in fiction and journalistic genres in the subsequent decades. This book features essays by some of the most important specialists in the First World War from Spain, Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Latin America, who, in the centenary of the conflict, provide an invative critical approach to this crucial event in contemporary history.
