Literature of the Great War

How did the literature of World War I express the horrors of war? How did it react against those horrors? Geoff Dyer, Justin Go, Liesl Schillinger, and Janne Teller explore the influence of WWI literature on writers working today, and discuss recently re-discovered classics such as Gabriel Chevallier’s Fear.
