852 Heroes' Twilight: a Study of the Literature of the Great War, by Bernard Bergonzi (read 14 May 1966) This is a study of English writing emanating from World War I. Robert Graves' Goodbye To All That is called an "undoubted English autobiographical masterpiece of the war." Bergonzi seems to feel Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End is the top fiction to come out of the war from England. Frederic Manning's Her Private We also appears worth reading. While he devotes a chapter to In Parenthesis by David Jones, I doubt 'twould be worthwhile for me to read it. Poignant for me is this from Vernon Scannell's "The Great War":And now, Whenever the November skyQuivers with a bugle's coarse, sweet cry,The reason darkens, in its evening gleamCrosses and flares, tormented wire, grey earth,Splattered with crimson flowers,And I remember,Not the war I fought inBut the one called GreatWhich ended in a sepia NovemberFour years before my birth."
