Une écriture de la rétrospection

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Grande Guerre des écrivains : études
  • Author: Ouali (Thabette)
  • Abstract: In Les Croix de bois, the need to write signifies an old ­­combatant’s examination of his time at the front. Introducing reason into the irrationality of the chaotic life of the trenches explains ­Dorgelès’ retrospective vision, and finds its expression in the choice of an innovative writing mode which makes him the harbinger of a form of literature born of the mud and blood of the trenches.
