Men and Women Writers of the 1930s: The Dangerous Flood of History

Synopsis

Men and Women Writers of the 1930s is a searching critique of the issues of memory and gender during this dynamic decade. Montefiore asks two principle questions; what part does memory play in the political literature of and about 1930s Britain? And what were the roles of women, both as writers and as signifying objects in constructing that literature? Writers include: * George Orwell * W.H. Auden * Jean Rhys * Virginia Woolf * Storm Jameson * Rebecca West
