3.0 out of 5 stars Quite disappointed, 31 May 2009
This review is from: The Cambridge Companion to the Literature of the First World War (Cambridge Companions to Literature) (Paperback)
Probably I expected too much, but this Companion to WWI literature was a disappointment. One thinks that what comes from Cambridge is always top quality scholarship, but this reads more as a sometime shallow textbook for undergraduate courses. Most of it is stuff that could be already find on the books by the classic critics of W.W.I lit, such as Bergonzi or Fussell; some of the contributions seems to have been written by people who were not knowledgeable with this topic. Another weak point of the Companion is that it fails in tackling the phenomenon of Great War literature as a Euro-American phenomenon: its perspective is absolutely Anglo-centric, and this weakens the intellectual impact of the book. But I might be wrong in expecting too much, and this collection of essays is no more than a didactic instrument aimed at not-very-bright undergrad students.
