Modern Nostalgia

Robert Hemmings

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter takes a look at certain aspects of Sassoon’s nostalgia within the rural revival movement, which, it notes, slowly gathered strength during the gap between the First and Second World Wars, eventually finding an indirect expression in the pastoral ideals represented in Georgian poetry. The discussion determines that this revival is a response to the traumatic legacy of war.
