Section iii contains four readings entitled "What is Conscience?", "The Individual and Society,""Religious and Philosophical Approaches to War," and "Exploring Your Own Religious Tradition."

War and peace in literature : prose, drama, and poetry which illuminate the problem of war by Lucy Dougall( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Literary works that will help teachers of humanities and conflict resolution courses lead their students to a better understanding of the problems of war and peace are summarized. The document is based on two premises: (1) literature that captures the experience and the meaning of war leads to an understanding of that phenomenon, and (2) the literary imagination can help students gain insight into the requirements of any successful attempt to replace war with less brutal and destructive means of resolving political conflict. The works listed (with annotations) offer widely differing perspectives; chronologically they extend from the Trojan War to Vietnam. Including the introduction, there are seven chapters. Chapters 2 and 3 describe prose and drama. Chapter 4 deals with poetry. Themes in poetry of war and peace are outlined; these 21 themes are then illustrated by excerpts from poems. The chapter concludes by describing epic poetry. Chapters 5 and 6 describe anthologies, reference works, criticism, and essays. The book concludes with a chart of literature on specific wars and a title index. (Rm)
