Back to Peace free pdf The focus of this volume of essays on the literary representation of the aftermaths of wars over time and place is very significant. Although there have been many studies of gender and wartime, and this has expanded into a recognized field of academic study, little attention has been paid to the return to a peacetime landscape. To focus on this complex subject and its literature provides the opening not only for new pathways to academic teaching and research, but to important interventions in the ways we think about war literature and the many periods that fall under the rubric of interwar. Phyllis Lassner, Northwestern University" Back to Peace" provides a critical meditation on the contested social and cultural terrains of peacetime, from Dryden's England to the more recent diaspora of Vietnamese writers in exile. The editors of this volume bring together an international group of scholars to trouble the categories of peace and war and to expose the anxieties and ambiguities that strew the paths of postwar writers.Readers of these essays will find rich evidence that the return to peace represented in poetry, drama, fiction, and nonfiction is anything but peaceful for individuals or nations. Jane E. Schultz, Indiana University-Purdue University-IndianapolisScholars have rarely studied a society s return to peace as a cultural category, as a formative experience common to many lives at any time in history. This collection of original essays by historians and literary critics explores the complex and difficult question of how a culture does, in fact, return to peace after a war. Combining analyses of both literary texts and historical sources, the contributors focus on the cultural, political, and personal implications of returning to peace."
