Following Modris Eksteins, Birgit Menzel examines the First World War as an expression of modernism, particularly with regard to introspection, primitivism, abstraction, and myth creation. After a thematic overview of reactions to the war by contemporary Russian intellectuals and artists, focusing on symbolists, post-symbolists, and the avant-garde, the chapter closely analyzes two works: Vladimir Mayakovski’s 1915–1916 poem “Voina i mir” (War and the World) and Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s novel August 1914 (1971/1983).

Keywords:   Modris Eksteins, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, modernism, Vladimir Mayakovski, symbolism, avant-garde
