This 1929 novel served as Remarque's attempt to confront and ultimately rid himself of the graphic and haunting memories of his time serving in World War I. A novel with overtones of autobiography, "All Quiet on the Western Front" traces the evolution of one man's powerful antiwar sentiments. This new title in the "Bloom's Guides" series also features an annotated bibliography, a listing of other works by the author, and an introduction by literary scholar Harold Bloom.
