World War I and British Literature
In honor of Armistice Day, which commemorates the end of the First World War, Special Collections is highlighting the impact of the War on English literature. As the First World War ruptured all aspects of European society, writers like Siegfried Sassoon, T. S. Eliot, and Rupert Graves broke with traditional forms of literary writing and expression. Their work is on display along with rare books and manuscripts by other famous British authors of the early to mid-twentieth century. The exhibit will be on display throughout the month of November.
