No Woman’s Land? Women’s Writings and Historical Representation in World War I

ByDenise Borille de Abreu

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Women’s participation in wars, either directly or indirectly, has been the study object of war narratives since the Classical Age. This book aims to analyze women’s significant role to the construction of cultural memory and how women’s representations have evolved, from myth, since Homer until the early twentieth century, when the First War was declared, to the assumption of “silent victims” in wartime, and, finally, to the condition of proactive members of a much-dreamed society with equal opportunities for everyone. This book also addresses, more specifically, how women war narratives of the First World War reflect upon the war trauma, which brought equally disastrous consequences for women, men and children and how the War contributed to the reconfiguration of women’s social roles.
