520 2  "The poets' Great War--violence, revolution and modernism.
       The First World War changed the map of Europe forever; 
       empires collapsed, new countries emerged, revolutions 
       shocked and inspired the world. The Great War is often 
       referred to as 'the literary war,' the war that saw both 
       the birth of modernism and the precursors of futurism. 
       During the first few months in Germany alone there were 
       over a million poems of propaganda written. In this 
       cultural history of the First World War, the conflict is 
       seen from the point of view of poets and writers from all 
       over Europe, including Rupert Brooke, Alexander Blok, 
       James Joyce, Fernando Pessoa, Andre Breton and Siegfried 
       Sassoon. Everything to Nothing is a transnational history 
       of how nationalism and internationalism defined both the 
       war itself and post-war dealings--revolutionary movements,
       wars for independence, civil wars, Versailles--and of how 
       poets played a vital role in defining the stakes, 
       ambitions and disappointments of postwar Europe"--
