Title Details
1914 by Greenlaw, Lavinia
1914: Goodbye to All That - Writers on the Conflict Between Life and Art
by Greenlaw, Lavinia
 
In this collection of essays, ten leading writers from different countries consider the conflicts  that have informed their own literary lives. 1914-Goodbye to All That borrows its title from Robert Graves's "bitter leave-taking of England" in which he writes not only of the First World War but the questions it raised: how to live, how to live with each other, and how to write. 
Interpreting this title as broadly and ambiguously as Graves intended, these essays mark the War's centenary by reinvigorating these questions.  The book includes Elif Shafak on an inheritance of silence in Turkey, Ali Smith on lost voices in Scotland, Xiaolu Guo on the 100,000 Chinese sent to the Front, Daniel Kehlmann on hypnotism in Berlin, Colm Toibin on Lady Gregory losing her son fighting for Britain as she fought for an independent Ireland, Kamila Shamsie on reimagining Karachi, Erwin Mortier on occupied Belgium's legacy of shame, NoViolet Bulawayo on Zimbabwe and clarity, Ales Steger on resisting history in Slovenia, and Jeanette Winterson on what art is for.
Contributors include:

Ales Steger - Slovenia
Jeanette Winterson - England

NoViolet Bulawayo - Zimbabwe
Colm Toíbín - Ireland
Xiaolu Guo - China
Erwin Mortier - Belgium
