Women Writers of the First World War  An Annotated Bibliography

'They also serve who only stand and wait' The idea of there being a 'women's writing' during the First World War is often dismissed.

This bibliography challenges that view by listing and annotating hundreds of published books, articles, memoirs, diaries and letters written by women during the First World War. Included are: * Virginia Woolf * Katherine Mansfield * G.B Stern * Brenda Girvin * known and unknown autobiographers and diarists * writers of pro and anti-war propaganda * journal and magazine articles * literary, cultural and historical criticism
