Abstract

All too often researchers and teachers of literary texts assume that their audiences share a body of knowledge which they cannot possibly share because of its cultural specificity. In this article Great War poetry by Jacob Israel de Haan, Ber Horowitz, Edward Słoński, René de Clercq, Jozef Simons, Albert Verwey and Herman Gorter is used to illustrate how the authors' notions of nationhood and (inter)nationalism are determined by the way in which they are politically, linguistically and geographically situated. By making this explicit, it both facilitates and enriches our understanding of their work.
