“Armistice 1918”: Dr Stephen Rogers

"This course will focus on varied texts associated with the end of the war - including poetry by Wilfred Owen (killed 4th November), Apollinaire (died of Spanish flu 9th November) and Charlotte Mew's poem “The Cenotaph”, Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms - although not an armistice novel says something about transition from war to peace, and sections of Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End that describe the day of the armistice. "
