Abstract

abstract:

This essay aims to establish a link between the recent material and affective turns in literary scholarship by asking how visceral experiences of the First World War are embodied in the content and material form of trench publications. It argues that Guillaume Apollinaire, who contributed to the general, avant-garde, and soldiers’ press, helped create an affective public sphere by documenting everyday ways of living at the front in both his poetry and trench journalism.
