Critical Insights: All Quiet on the Western Frontby Brian Murdoch
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Essay selections include a comparison of All Quiet on the Western Front to Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms, a comprehensive survey of the novel’s popular and critical reception, an examination of the novel’s often overlooked subtleties of tone, characterization, and plot, and Remarque’s startling direct style and his relevance to twenty-first-century readers. Previously published essays offer a close reading of the novel and its themes of comradeship, as well as the devastating effects of war on those who live through it and an account of the
production and reception of the 1930 film adaptation.
