Answer four (4) of the following six essays. Be sure to address the question posed.
The cultural impact of World War One was profound and widespread. Many veterans of the war were artists whose experiences on the front influenced their artwork in the post war years. Using specific examples show how the First World War was portrayed in the works of the German artists we discussed. What techniques did they employ to capture the horrors of WWI and its aftermath?
Two of the most significant literary works concerning WWI were Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front and Ernst Juenger’s Storm of Steel. Although both authors were German, their description of the war and their response to the war differed greatly. Compare and contrast these two works.
Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms is, perhaps, the best known American novel of WWI. How does Hemingway react to the war, how does he treat the theme of love in a time of war, the contrast between life affirming and death confirming imagery?
Among the political developments in the aftermath of WWI, fascism and Nazism emerged and transformed traditional systems of governance. How did WWI affect the career and world view of Adolf Hitler and pave the way for the Nazism and twelve years of brutal death and destruction?
The First World War in the Middle East is an aspect of the conflict that is sometimes overlooked, but with lasting consequences to this very day. Discuss the importance of T.E. Lawrence (“Lawrence of Arabia”), the Sykes Picot Agreement and the Armenian Genocide in that regard.
Several poets that we read and discussed underwent a profound change in attitude toward the Great War from initial enthusiasm to disappointment and disillusionment having served on the Western Front. Using relevant examples discuss their reactions to trench warfare, loss of life and nationalism in specific poems.
