This issue proposes an itinerary through the arts, showing the role of art in the denunciation of war. The selection of novels, poems, music or films confronts the issue of war through pan-European and transatlantic views, with a first part dedicated to the novel by Findley The Wars, which speaks about the bestiality of wars and the humanity of animals. The volume shifts from the examination of
Wilfred Owen’s œuvre, to the influence of British War poets on Nigerian poetry, to avant-garde musicians’ response to war, or to its representation on stage and screen. The final section, which is unrelated to the theme of war, brings together essays on the first collection of short stories by the Canadian Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro which specifically highlight the various strategies she displays in Dance of the Happy Shades.
