Ghosts of 1914

Good stuff at this blog:

Here’s what blogger Fiona says about herself:

I have been interested in the arts and letters of the Great War since high school, and began serious academic work on British war literature (specifically, women’s fiction about shell shock) during my undergraduate days at U.C. Berkeley. Now, I am a Yale University graduate student completing a Ph.D. dissertation on British life and history writing of the Great War era. My blog was born out of a love of the material, textual, and cultural artifacts that I have encountered in my work on the relationship between individual and national narratives of a modern crisis. “Ghosts of 1914” is meant to be a cabinet of curiosities and wonders–some possessed of strange beauty, others marked by poignant tragedy. As curator of this little virtual museum, I hope to share with you some of my passion for the history of the Great War and what it can teach us, who live in an era of conflict ourselves, about the experience and costs of combat. It is my hope that studying war will teach us to love and seek peace.
