“Across the Great Divide: Experience, Authority, and the Great War in Britain”

Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 8:36am

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 25, 2019

Conference Theme: “Upheaval and Reconstruction”

Tracing the origins of what he calls the “Myth of the [Great] War,” Samuel Hynes has argued that soldier-poets and memoirists gave this narrative of the conflict its “fullest definition” in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and that it “can be reduced to two terse propositions: the old betray the young; the past is remote and useless” (A War Imagined x). “No generation since then has questioned its validity,” Hynes continues; rather, the soldier-poets’ account is “repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth.”
