Andrew GRIFFITHS,Sara PRIETO,Soenke ZEHLE
Résumé
Incorporating a wide range of international critical perspectives, this book offers a rich and complex vision of the press during the Great War. By presenting excerpts from several primary sources alongside a contextual gloss and a scholarly essay, the collection highlights the varied effects produced when literary techniques were fused with factual reportage. The primary texts selected come from neutral and warring countries alike, including the pacisfi st polemics of Belgian graphic artist Frans Masereel to the bitter irony of the soldiers' own trench journals. These literary journalists bear witness to the common challenges with which writers from all nations grappled as they attempted to report on a new kind of warfare.
