Art of Survival by Murphy, Libby
Art of Survival: France and the Great War Picaresque
by Murphy, Libby
 
Investigates how French infantrymen and civilians attempted to make sense of the war while it was still in progress by reviving the picaresque, a literary mode in which unheroic protagonists are forced to fend for themselves in a hostile world. By examining works by French and European novelists, journalists, graphic artists, cultural critics, and filmmakers, Murphy shows how the rich tradition of the European picaresque was uniquely appropriate for expressing anxieties provoked by modern, industrialized warfare.
