Rebecca West was always hard on Tolstoy. To a reader, The Return of the Soldier has a deceptively serene surface.

Rebecca West was always hard on Tolstoy. She accused him of writing the same book over and over-something she could never be accused of doing-and of being a preacher, rather than an artist. In our time we are tempted to believe that long sentences are necessarily languid or turgid and that a writer’s palette of colors should not be quite as pure and primary as West’s in this novel.

Rebecca West was apparently the first woman to write of the Great War. And this taut short novel from 1918 tells of Chris, a young English soldier with memory loss, robbing him of the last 15 years.

Rebecca West could have written the same kind of story by making Chris fall off his horse, hit his head against a rock and suffer from amnesia. So, the point isn’t the war and what it does to soldiers, even if the reader can’t help thinking Chris’s mind wouldn’t have snapped if he hadn’t attempted to protect his sanity from the horror of the trenches by recalling the happiest days of his life.

Return of a Soldier is British writer Rebecca West’s first novelette. It was published in 1918, during World War I and is about the war, or more precisely, the effects the war had on civilians on the Homefront and soldiers on the battlefield. The book may be considered a novella or short story that covers over 90 pages of a series of flashbacks of memories to piece together Chris’s mindset. And with Jenny’s helpful narration of the story, she provides clarity, but even with that in mind, there is a bit of complexity that emerges within each short chapter.
