About the Author

Randall Stevenson was born in the north of Scotland. He grew up in Glasgow and was educated the Universities of Edinburgh and Oxford. After teaching for a time in North-West Nigeria, he returned to the Department of English Literature in the University of Edinburgh in the 1980s. He has also lectured abroad, in ten European countries and in Korea, Egypt, and Nigeria. His work has been translated into Italian and Russian, and new editions of his critical studies have been published in Romania and in China.


Randall Stevenson has done much to reveal the "varied, imaginative vision" of First World War writings. His book will teach the student reader that such literature is generically diverse and thematically varied, traditional and innovative, long and short, prolix and reticent. Literature and the Great War will also demonstrate that the conflict resists definitive interpretation and, in consequence, belongs to no one. Rather, it belongs to everyone, and the centenary events will do it justice if they elicit creative responses to individual and collective memories. * Kate McLoughlin, The Times Literary Supplement *
