Description ART, MUSIC AND LITERATURE FROM WWI: A SAMPLING by Ron Green (professor emeritus of Education, Gustavus Adolphus College). WWI, also known as the The Great War, and as the War To End All Wars, generated more art, music, poetry and other literature than all the other wars in history, combined. This phenomena can be partially explained by both the length and the savagery of the conflict and also by the large number of nations involved in the conflict and the amazingly large numbers of men and a few women who were motivated to create original works as they watched their comrades die in the savagery of 50 months of battle. This presentation will focus on just a few of the more memorable artists, composers, poets and authors whose works have survived over the decades since the war ended.
