Description - A War Imagined by Samuel Hynes

Between the opulent Edwardian years and the 1920s, World War I opens like a gap in history, separating one world of beliefs and values from another, and changing not only the map of Europe, but the ways in which men and women imagined reality itself. England after the war was a different place: the arts were different; history was different; sex, society and class were all different. The author records the process of that transformation of the English imagination, from the war's beginning into post-war England with its disillusionment, social fragmentations and the waste land spirit. He draws upon literary texts, newspaper and magazine writings, paintings, music, parliamentary debates, films, personal diaries and letters. The author also wrote "The Auden Generation", "The Edwardian Turn of Mind", "The Pattern of Hardy's Poetry" and "Edwardian Occasions".
