Sites of memory,
This review is from: Sites of Memory, Sites of Mourning: The Great War in European Cultural History (Canto) (Paperback)As an artist with an interest in memory and memorial , this book is like a manual which I refer to and read often. Its contents have sent me off on new investigative directions, and even the bibliography is a source of information for my own artistic reasearch. It covers more than visual art, including literature and film. It manages to be both scholarly and moving, particularly where repatriation of the dead is discussed. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the impact of the Great War on art and society. It's a sobering, interesting and provocative read.
