This fascinating study shows how established novelists tried to c ome to terms with events for which their previous fiction was no help. As for soldier novelists, it was some time before they could begin to make fiction out of the traumatic years. When they did, they produced a body of work that substa n t i a l l y a d ds to our understanding of what the war meant to those who fought in it, and of the society from which they came and with which they could never again feel at peace." Interior - very light browning to pages, otherwise clean and t ig ht w it h no p r ev io us ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, light browning to edges of textblock. Very Good+
