The Spectacle of Modern Military Movements

updated:

From the trenches to the atom bomb, the modernist period was disturbingly defined by new military realities, ideologies, and mythologies that spread the globe. New forms of conflict and revolution were not limited to the battlefield, however. Militarism affected everything from art and literary movements to class, race, and gender relations. Consider for example the militant poetic ideals of Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot, or Virginia Woolf's exploration of military fashion as a form of masculine spectacle, or the effects of Hemingway's war experiences on his narrative style. In what ways might these modern military movements be conceived as a form of spectacle?
