Course Synopsis The ‘Great War’ has been described as a watershed moment in British society, sweeping away the social certainties of the Edwardian period. Its literature often portrays the collision of unquestioning patriotism and idealism with the disillusioning brutality of trench warfare. In this course we will examine the impact of World War I on British society and culture, exploring in particular the politics, ideology, and literature of the time. We will consider both traditional and revisionist interpretations, discussing the enduring power of myth and literature in affecting how the war has been remembered.
