Modern nostalgia : Siegfried Sassoon, trauma and the Second World War by Robert Hemmings( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores Siegfried Sassoon's writing of the twenties, thirties and forties, demonstrating the connections between trauma and nostalgia in a culture saturated with the anxieties of war." "Informed by the texts of Freud, W.H.R. Rivers and other psychological writers of the early twentieth century, as well as contemporary theorists of nostalgia and trauma, this book examines the pathology of nostalgia conveyed in Sassoon's unpublished poems, letters and journals, together with his published work. It situates his ongoing anxiety about 'Englishness', modernity, and his relation to modernist aesthetics, within the context of other literary responses to the legacy of war, and the threat of war's return, by writers including Edmund Blunden, Robert Graves and T.E. Lawrence." "This study teases out the relationship between nostalgia, trauma and autobiography, and forges connections between the literatures of the two world wars. As a case study of modern nostalgia, this book offers an alternative to the perception that Sassoon's historical and cultural relevance touches the First World War only."--Jacket

In dit onderzoek naar de smaak van nostalgie, de verleiding van het eten van de appel, wordt de contradictie over de perfecte vrouw in de perfecte wereld zichtbaar, want waarom zou zij zichzelf of haar omgeving willen veranderen? In deze interpretatie van 'Alice in Wonderland', 'The wind in the willows' en 'Winnie-the-Poeh' zijn smaken, geuren en de rituelen van de voedselbereiding momenten van trauma in een geidealiseerd verleden
