Special Session at S014 SAMLA conference (Atlanta)

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters." Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books. Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications.

During WW1 the language of heroism and holy war was succeeded by images of hell and horror where the soldier was not so much a hero as a victim. Jingoism gave way to protest, and war was no longer a story leading to victory but a drawn out catastrophe. Wilfred Owen believed that new moral landscapes of the new hell were needed. In avant-garde poetry late Romantic Georgian expressions gave way to forms of Modernism. Three thousand volumes of poetry were published during the war years. In Germany 50,000 war poems a day were submitted for publication during August 1914. In France Barbusse's novel Le Feu delivered during the war a Zolaesque indictment drawing on images of the Flood and apocalypse.
