Sunday 4 'til 8 for Sunday 19 October 2014
New Zealand literary commentators Kate Camp, Harry Ricketts, Jane Stafford and Kate Hunter look at literature from the front lines, including All Quiet on the Western Front, Testament of Youth, and We Shall Not Cease. What makes the accounts of soldiers, nurses and pacifists more than mere diaries? And how did a German novel become the most influential account of fighting in World War One?
The second in a series of three discussions exploring the legacy of World War One writing. Made in association with The New Zealand Book Council, with support from Victoria University of Wellington, the series features New Zealand literary commentators Kate Camp, Harry Ricketts, Jane Stafford and special guests discussing and dissecting favourite writings on the war – from poetry to fiction, diaries to graphic novels.
