War No More: Realism in Civil War Literature

Cynthia  Wachtell September 17, 2010

Cynthia Wachtell, author of 'War No More: The Antiwar Impulse in American Literature, 1861-1914.'

Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

...nineteenth century civil war literature tended to invoke romanticized images of glory and honor on bloodless battlefields. 'The real war,' Walt Whitman famously wrote, 'will never get in the books.' Only after World War 1, many people assume, did American writers begin to offer realistic, cynical, disillusioned pictures of just what war is. Not so, says Cynthia Wachtell, author of 'War No More: The Antiwar Impulse in American Literature, 1861-1914.' She'll be our guest today on Civil War Talk Radio."
