The Cambridge Companion to the Literature of World War IIby Marina MacKay
The literature of the Second World War has emerged as an accomplished, moving, and challenging body of work, with writers such as Orwell, Woolf, Sartre, Hemingway, Levi, and Auden. This Companion provides a comprehensive overview of the international literatures of the war: both those works that recorded or reflected experiences of the war as it happened, and those that tried to make sense of it afterwards. It will be an invaluable source of information and inspiration for students and scholars of modern literature and war studies.
