And We Go On: A Memoir of the Great War by Will R. Bird

In the autumn of 1915 Will Bird was working on a farm in Saskatchewan when the ghost of his brother Stephen, killed by German mines in France, appeared before him in uniform. Rattled, Bird rushed home to Nova Scotia and enlisted in the army to take his dead brothers place. And We Go On is a remarkable and harrowing memoir of his two years in the trenches of the Western Front, from October 1916 until the Armistice. When it first appeared in 1930, Birds memoir was hailed by many veterans as the most authentic account of the war experience, uncompromising in its portrayal of the horror and savagery, while also honouring the bravery, camaraderie, and unexpected spirituality that flourished among the enlisted men. Written in part as a reaction to anti-war novels such as All Quiet on the Western Front, which Bird criticized for portraying the soldier as a coarse-minded, profane creature, seeking only the solace of loose women or the courage of strong liquor, And We Go On is a nuanced response to the trauma of war, suffused with an interest in the spiritual and the paranormal not found in other war literature. Long out of print, it is a true lost classic that arguably influenced numerous works in the Canadian literary canon, including novels by Robertson Davies and Timothy Findley. In an introduction and afterword, David Williams illuminates Birds work by placing it within the genre of Great War literature and by discussing the books publication history and reception.

1. "You Oughta Know" By Alanis Morissette

That's the price you pay Leave behind your heart and cast away Just another product of today Rather be the hunter than the prey. Looking through the glass find the wrong within the past knowing We are youth Cut until it bleeds inside a world without the peace, face it. Boomerang How many lies do we have to tell? To keep from saying that I wish you well. How many tears do we have to cry?

The '90s might be long one, but there are still so many things about the decade that resonate: Lisa Frank designs, all the TV shows that are getting reboots, and so much now-classic music. It doesn't matter what age you are — it's hard to forget the soundtrack to your own childhood. With that said, there are so many '90s songs whose lyrics you'll never forget , either because they are so darn catch or they've haunted you years later. From grunge and Ska to hip-hop and rap, '90s music had some pretty unforgettable tunes. Sure, there were definitely some one hit wonders by artists who made a splash and were never heard from again, but some artists have fame that lasted all the way into the s.
