Synopsis

Why have the thirties been marginalized in accounts of twentieth-century British writing, and what do these accounts gain, and lose, by this marginalization? What alternative descriptions of the decade's literature, its preoccupations, status, and relevance, can be made? And in Our Time brings together essays which, in diverse ways, not only revise existing views on thirties writing, but also provide ways of accounting for its critical neglect, and of indicating that the very qualities that have contributed to this neglect may now be understood as sources of the period's importance for current critical debate. The essays of And in Our Time examine, from a variety of theoretical and critical perspectives, a body of work that reflects the true diversity of the literary and cultural contexts of the thirties, and includes studies of the work of Louis MacNeice, Frank Sheed, Christopher Dawson, Alick West, Christopher Caudwell, Stevie Smith, Storm Jameson, Phyllis Bottome, Ivy Compton-Burnett, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, George Orwell, Christina Stead, Randall Swingler, and Ralph Fox.
