Writing on War



War is at the heart of European literature regardless of genre, the author’s origin, or artistic movements. Arturo Pérez-Reverte’s autobiographical novel, while following traditional codes, offers an original vision of war considered in the long view, and analyzed from every angle. The reader is then placed in an uncomfortable situation, for although war, which is reported on widely and in differing ways, seems familiar, the issues raised by the work place the reader before a reality that escapes him.
