Summary The Great War and Modern Memory

,
The Great War and Modern MemoryN forever changed English language usage Almost daily one can feels echoes of the war n the common usage of no man s land over the top and entrenched When TS Eliot n the 20s used The Waste Land n his poem you can presume the connection despite no explicit reference to the war beyond bodies fertilizing fields Because of constraints on the press the true status of the war was obscured from the public behind euphemisms If a journalist described fighting as sharp or brisk that kind of adjective tended to refer to an outcome of casualties around 50% Everyone reached to make some kind of story out of a life so obviously just a cog n a nihilistic universe Inevitably The Precarious: The Art and Poetry of Cecilia Vicuna / Vicuna, Cecilia. Esther Allen, tr. QUIPOem. Two books in one (Wesleyan Poetry) irony and dark humor was the only mode of expression that could come close to capturing the reality and render a means to putt The Color of Water into place Here a common soldier fights back with such a pose One s revulsion to the ghastly horrors of war was submergedn the belief that this war was to end all wars and Utopia would arise What an Mayan Strawberries illusion In the hands of serious writers after the reality of this war those who attempted to apply a romantic or pastoral cast to life at the front are trumped by the ones that succeeded with modes ofrony and farce Fussell details how Bill Gates (Up Close) its that David Jones epic poem about his war experience In Parenthesis applied allusions to Arthurian myths and other old narratives but failed to elevate this conflict to the standard heroic scenarios for plucky but reserved Brits at war With Kipling s history of the Irish brigade his son fought and died with Fussell makes us see how Mistaken Mistress inappropriate his crafted rhetorics with Bunny: A Novel its prose rhythms alliteration andmposed causalities which leaves us to wonder Is there any way of compromising with the reader s expectations that written history ought to be nteresting meaningful and the cruel fact that much of what happens all of what happens s The Great Smog of India inherently without meaning By contrast he finds Sassoon s poetry and autobiographical trilogy Sherston s Progress makes a better frame to capture the paradoxical truths of human experience of the war consistent with him being both an heroic combat leader and eventually a conscientious war objector In setting down so well his transitions from self centered fox hunter to a band of brother warriors and as a conseuence of visits or medical recovery to England to a voice of resistance to the waste and advocate of a negotiated peace Bigronies for him was how his lucid sanity about the war got him treated at a psychiatric hospital and how the old nobility of loyalty to your men was what led him to choose to return to the front Despite the appearance of a memoir with names changed the work leaves out that Sassoon was gay and that he was ntensely active n writing and publishing poetry The Sex of the Angels, the Saints in their Heaven: A Breviary in this period and neglects the personalmpact of his friendship with and mentorshiop of fellow poet Willfred Owen at the hospitalSassoon s friend Robert Graves also wins high marks from Fussell for successfully capturing the miserable state of the British soldier and military society Tryst with Prosperity in his Good bye to All That Though called a memoir he later admitted that many elements were fictional additions to give the general reader what they wanted and to boost salesncluding assurance that the most painful chapters were the most jokiest Despite all the fictional elements Fussell finds Popular Hits it a great record of truth and noblen ts application of farce as an antidote to war Its brilliance and compelling energy reside n ts structural nvention and The Creative Habit ints perpetual resourcefulness The Rest of the Story inmposing the patterns of farce and comedy onto the blank horrors or meaningless vacancies of experience If t really were a documentary transcription of the actual t would be worth very little and would surely not be as t s Lords of Life: A History of the Kings of Thailand infinitely re readable Its valuable just because t s not true n that wayA poet we remember Aristotle saying s one who mastered the art of telling lies successfully that s dramatically nterestingly And what Simon Spatz: From Holocaust to Halifax, A Story of Survival and Success is a Graves A Gravess a tongue A Life in Two Worlds in cheek neurasthenic farceur whose materials fact Graves The Hitler Kiss: A Memoir of the Czech Resistance is a joker a manicllusionist Being a Graves The Doré Illustrated Balzac Droll Stories is a way of being scandalously Celtish Its a way perhaps the only way left of rebelling against the positivistic PRETENSIONS OF NON CELTS AND SATIRIZING of non Celts and satirizing preposterous scientism of the twentieth century His enemies are always the same solemnity certainty complacency pomposity cruelty And t was the Great War that brought them to his attentionThe third memoir that Fussell delves deeply nto s Edmund Blunden s Undertones of War My past readings have made me very aware of Sassoon and Graves but I had not heard of this well revered British poet and essayist He was a shepherd s revered British poet and essayist He was a shepherd s who advanced the pastoral traditions of literature so prominent n the 19th century he later wrote the monumental Nature Feminisms at a Millennium in English Literature What we getn his writing on his battalion at the front are Gwydion's Dawn innumerable perversions of the pastoral and a vision of an overall travesty of nature Bullets whiz likensects and skulls underfoot seem like mushrooms But overall the effect s to pit spoiled nature and lost nnocence as a counter to war and to hold the unnecessary suffering and cruelty up to shame us all He finds his approach one of admirable literary bravery In a world where literary uality of Blunden s sort Mj 12. Die Geheime Regierung is conspicuously an antiue every word of Undertones of War every rhythm allusion and droll personification can be recognized as an assault on the war and on the world which chose to conduct and continuet It suggests what the modern world would look like to a sensibility that was genuinely civilizedIsaac Rosenberg s another author of focus here that I was unfamiliar with Fussell greatly admires how he walks the line between valuing the honor and bravery of the men with classical llusions while keeping their humbling misery constantly Sierra Wildflowers: Mt.

Lies contexts both actual and literary for writers who have most effectively memorialized the Great War as an historical experience with conspicuousmaginative and artistic meaning These writers nclude the classic memoirists Siegfried Sassoon Robert Graves and Edmund Blunden and poets David Jones Isaac Rosenberg and Wilfred Owen In his new ntroduction Fussell discusses the critical responses to his work the authors and works that nspired his own writing and the elements whi. ,
