Transatlantic Shell Shock

University of North Georgia Press
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock (a term that this volume understands as denoting specifically mental trauma unique to World War I), greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This peer-reviewed comparative collection, under contract with the University of North Georgia Press, seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.

Survival

Whether my life had been before that sleep

The Heaven which I imagine, or a Hell

Like this harsh world in which I wake to weep,

I know not——

Percy Bysshe Shelley, ‘The Triumph of Life’

 

Living on is not the opposite of living,

just as it is not identical with living——

Jacques Derrida, ‘Living On’
