9780349005928: Testament of Youth : An Autobiographical Study of the Years 1900-1925
Revue de presse :

Vera Brittain's heart-rending account of the way her generation's lives changed is still as shocking and moving as ever. ( STELLA MAGAZINE, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Like the much-misunderstood poppy, Testament both memorializes and warns... to remain uninformed is actually life-threatening. ( TLS)

it was a surprise to pick her book up now and discover how very good it is. (Diana Athill The Guardian)

sublimely moving... this is a truly great book... should be compulsory reading for the nation's debauched and aimless yobs and yobettes (Val Hennessy DAILY MAIL)

essential reading, not just as an anti-war polemic but as a portrait of a whole generation of young people who were totally ill-prepared and whose lives were utterly changed within four momentous years. ( HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW)

brilliantly captures the protracted horrors of a war into which her generation was preciptated unprepared... as a personal and social document of its turbulent times, written from the viewpoint of a serious and reflective young woman, this autobiographical work fully merits rediscovery. ( CATHOLIC HERALD)

Everyone should read this book. Like all true classics, it has something to tell us all, one generation after another. And this handsome new edition benefits from photographic illustrations and an elegant preface by Shirley Williams, Vera Brittain's distinguished daughter. If you have tears, prepare to share them now. ( TRIBUNE)

A heartbreaking account of the impact of the First World War on a stout-hearted, high-minded young woman ( THE SUNDAY TIMES '100 Biographies to Love')

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington

Much of what we know and feel about the First World War we owe to Vera Brittain’s elegiac yet unsparing book, which set a standard for memoirists from Martha Gellhorn to Lillian Hellman. Abandoning her studies at Oxford in 1915 to enlist as a nurse in the armed services, Brittain served in London, in Malta, and on the Western Front. By war’s end she had lost virtually everyone she loved. Testament of Youth is both a record of what she lived through and an elegy for a vanished generation. Hailed by the Times Literary Suplement as a book that helped "both form and define the mood of its time," it speaks to any generation that has been irrevocably changed by war.

This edition features a new introduction by Brittain's biographer examining her struggles to write about her experiences and the book's reception in England and America.
