CHOICE Review

This five-volume collection, in essence a library in itself (excluding poetry), does an excellent job covering a huge quantity of the second-tier literature that was generated about WW I between 1914 and 1933. Perhaps better than any other collection, it approximates in condensed form the full range of literature found in newspapers, periodicals, broadsides, and "middle-brow" publications of the time, offering a conscientious reader a deep immersion into the cultural and intellectual milieu of the period. Volume 1 includes 22 short stories and a novella; volumes 2-4 offer three novels--Ruby Ayers's Richard Chatterton, V.C. (1915), Marie Belloc Lowndes's Good Old Anna (1915), and Rose Allatini's Despised and Rejected (1918). Volume 5 presents eight plays along with an extensively annotated bibliography of WW I drama. Each volume includes impressive scholarly apparatus with a detailed critical introduction, individual author introductions with full bibliographic information regarding the anthologized work, full notes, annotations, and bibliographies. In volumes 1 and 5, the works are arranged chronologically. The orientation is toward the home front, and many of the authors are women, which in itself makes this collection important since much of the literature is out of print or difficult to obtain. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers. B. Adler Georgia Southwestern State University
