VIOLENCE
In Theory and Practice

"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted." – Ellen Glasgow

Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.
