About this book

Introduction

The literary canon of World War 1 - celebrated for realising the experience of an entire generation - ignores writing by women. To the sorrows that war has always brought them - the loss of husbands, lovers, brothers - the Great War added a revolutionary knowledge. And all the time they wrote - letters, poetry, novels, short stories, memoirs. This volume of mutually reflective essays brings this writing into literary focus and ensures that women's recent history and literature are neither forgotten nor undervalued.
