While examining the First World War literature there are some titles and authors that always emerge, no matter which country you’re from. Remarque’s Im Westen nichts Neues is what we mean by this simple introduction. But one should never forget that the result of the conflict had great echoes on literature also long after the end of the war and relevant impact in the so called Entre-deux-guerres period. And the name of Erich Maria Remarque was not mentioned by chance since today reading suggestion is his novel Drei Kameraden first published in 1936 and written during the exile in Switzerland. This is not a book about the Great War but it’s a novel about what came after it and it’s generated from a kind of ghost image, from a perennial trauma shaping the minds of those who spent the youth buried in the European trenches. This is the reason why we consider for all purposes “Three Comrades” still a World War One novel. On the contrary, we do not consider for instance the recent 14 by Jean Echenoz a World War One novel. The novel by Echenoz represents simply the use of a war subject in today literature and we are able to collect similar examples in comics, arts, films while in Remarque’s case we’re still, with both feet, in the climate originating from the conflict.
