Summary: It has become axiomatic that First World War literature was disenchanted, or disillusioned, and returning combatants were unable to process or communicate that experience. In 'Writing Disenchantment', Andrew Frayn argues that this was not just about the war: non-combatants were just as disenchanted as those who fought, and writers such as D.H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf produced some of the sharpest criticisms.
