In the development of psychoanalysis in the s, notably in studies by William H. Rivers and Wilfred R. Men inside the military system did however persist in their denial of a condition of psychological war trauma Van Der Hart, Brown Dorit Szykiersky reports that:. In World War I the term shell-shock indicated that the etiological factor was the neurological damage due to excessive exposure to shelling and bombing. After the Great War, the growing influence of psychoanalysis on psychiatry shifted the emphasis to unconscious conflicts as vulnerability-increasing factors expressed in the term war neurosis.

The aim of this paper is to shed some light on the way WWI was experienced by colonial subjects living in Eritrea or abroad. The attempt is to offer a glimpse of the gaze of colonial subjects on this global and dramatic turmoil, resorting to novels, poetry, and correspondence written in Tigrinya by colonial subjects living in Eritrea or abroad. These materials provide a rare opportunity to check alternative narratives that go beyond the conventional colonial representations of the conflict. This is even more significant as the literature dealing with original African voices talking about the First World War remains scanty. The material I will discuss is composed of correspondence among Eritreans living abroad and their relatives and friends at home as well as abroad. They are mainly original archival materials which I have collected during research in Italian and Swedish archives.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. ISBN Accordingly, Das seeks to reinstate a phenomenological criticism at the expense of theoretical abstractions. If the war was experienced chiefly by touch--'haptic' is among Das's favourite words--then readers and critics are obliged to respond through a vocabulary unusually alert to the tactile. Das reports on the 'materiality' still lurking in the Imperial War Museum Archives: the Flanders mud caught among letter pages, the dried flowers sent by a soldier to his wife, the trench memorabilia which' not only congeal time but conceal processes of touch' p. Photographs may capture appearances, but touch, Das notes, 'dies with the person' p. It is the most intimate of senses, and the most fundamental

War writing is haunted by experiences of physical contact: from the muddy realities of the front to the emotional intensity of trench life. Through extensive archival and historical research, analyzing previously unknown letters and diaries alongsideMoreWar writing is haunted by experiences of physical contact: from the muddy realities of the front to the emotional intensity of trench life. Through extensive archival and historical research, analyzing previously unknown letters and diaries alongside literary writings by figures such as Owen and Brittain, Santanu Das recovers the sensuous world of the First World War trenches and hospitals. This original and evocative study alters our understanding of the period as well as of the body at war, and illuminates the perilous intimacy between sense experience, emotion and language as we try to make meaning in times of crisis.

Santanu Das. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, He proceeds to give a moving account of the centrality of touch during the First World War, and the fraught and potent language soldiers and nurses found to give voice to their experiences. Das contributes to two different critical trends: the first, a developing interest in the phenomenology of the senses, and the second, the project, which has been going on for over twenty years, of the recovery and inclusion of lesser-known participants—nurses, privates, forgotten soldiers—in the First World War. Alhough Das's book contains previously unknown letters and diaries, his focus is less on the retrieval of lost material than the recuperation of a lost tactile experience. To crouch, cold, wet, and frightened, beside a friend in the mud of a trench; to hold the head of a dying comrade; to, as Vera Brittain writes, "dress unaided and without emotion, the quivering stump of a newly amputated limb" ; Das focuses on the intensity and ubiquity of these brief and powerful moments of human contact, in a brutal, depersonalized, and industrialized war.
