I’m sick of this damn war – the blood, the noise, the endless poetry – Lord Flasheart from Blackadder

If you had to pick any war that made the greatest contribution to literature, it would be, without question, World War One. English poetry alone is crowded with worthy cases. Most English people are familiar with the lines:

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England.

Rupert Brooke did not survive the war, and nor did many other poets – Julian Grenfell, whose Into Battle is nearly as famous; John McCrae, a Canadian surgeon, whose In Flanders Field, with its famous opening lines (In Flanders fields the poppies blow; Between the crosses, row on row; That mark our place) gave us Poppy Day; Edward Thomas, Charles Sorley, Wilfred Owen and Isaac Rosenberg were all killed in the War, but not before they had produced some fine poetry. Robert Graves, Edmund Blunden and Siegfried Sassoon are best known nowadays for their war memoirs (Goodbye to All That, Undertones of War and Memoirs of an Infrantry Officer respectively) but all wrote fine poetry as well. Robert Nichols wrote some fine war poetry (especially Ardours and Endurances) but later turned, unsuccessfully, to drama. Laurence Binyon wrote what may be the third most famous lines to come from World War I (after the Brooke and McCrae lines quoted above):

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

Amazingly enough, these lines were written in September 1914 when Binyon was still working in the British Museum. Binyon lived till 1943 and was Norton Professor of Poetry at Harvard. Finally, there is Ivor Gurney, who was both a talented poet and a talented musician, but who suffered a mental collapse a few years after the War and spent the last fifteen years of his life in a mental hospital. (Michael Hurd’s The Ordeal of Ivor Gurney is highly recommended for more details.) Two Irish poets deserve mentioning – Tom Kettle, whose Reason in Rhyme was a fine poem, and Francis Ledwidge, whose To One Dead was simple but effective.

We should also remember poets from other countries such as Ungaretti (Italy), Mayakovsky (Russia), Berta Lask (German) and Apollinaire (France), who all wrote fine poetry about the War. In addition to the above memoirs, we should also add David Jones’ In Parenthesis (a poem-cum-memoir) and from the same war but another theatre, T E Lawrence’s The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.

But we are here to talk about prose fiction. The First World War produced many fine works of fiction from participants of many countries – USA (Ernest Hemingway‘s A Farewell to Arms), England (Ford Madox Ford‘s Parade’s End), Germany (Erich Maria Remarque’s Im Westen Nichts Neues (All Quiet on the Western Front)), Austria (Hermann Broch‘s Die Schlafwandler (The Sleepwalkers) (3rd volume)), Czechoslovakia (Jaroslav Hasek‘s The Good Soldier Svejk) and France (Henri Barbusse‘s Le Feu (Under Fire)). The trend continues today with Pat Barker‘s Ghost Road Trilogy and Sebastian Faulks’ Birdsong. The key quote may well be from Roland Dorgelès:

Nous étions trop écrasés par la guerre pour l’envisager comme une matière de littérature. [We were too crushed by the war to consider it as a subject of literature.]
