  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The essay focuses his attention on the presence, in different authors-soldiers' texts who became involved in the frontline during the years of the Great War, of several themes, which are believed to be essential in the light of the tragic impact that the wartime experience had on soldiers and survivors. The author's aim is to prove how the art of (not) surviving, the comeback of the deceased and the fragile panismo (nature-worship) are three fundamental contents in the poems of both major and minor writers who were caught up in the conflict.
