Review in Times Higher Educational Supplement: How Art Might Survive Conflict

  • Hazel Hutchison

    Press/Media: Research


    Although we are still two years away from the centenary of America’s entry into the First World War, Hazel Hutchison’s compelling study of the work of US writers is timely, not least because her approach is a refreshing mix of the historical and the literary that does not focus on the obvious. The War That Used Up Words is a thoughtful and meticulously researched endeavour that brings together not only a diverse range of writers with varied experiences of the war, but also considers the importance of the interface between war, writing, art and nationality in a world where nothing remained straightforward.
