Material type: TextTextSeries: Universal und kulturhistorische studienPublisher: Wiesbaden, Germany : Springer VS, 2020Description: 372 páginas : ilustraciones ; 25 cmContent type: texto Media type: sin medio Carrier type: volumenISBN: 9783658278588Subject(s): Batallas en la literatura | Historia militarLOC classification: D25.5 | .B37Classification: Summary: Battle descriptions are usually seen as the raw material of the military historian, who uses them to explain why generals won or lost a given battle. This volume does not aim to contribute to this discussion; it rather approaches battle descriptions as literary texts that interact with the expectations of a given audience. Therefore literary traditions in structure, vocabulary and topics of battle descriptions should be explored. The transgression of genre-borders – also literary and fictional texts are included – and a broad comparative approach, combining evidence from the third millennium BC up to the 20th century AD, makes cultural specifics and differences more easily perceivable.
