Synopsis

How did literature develop in Britain in the twentieth century? How did it interact with the wider culture and history of the times? Each of the volumes in this series analyses the literary developments of a single decade in their widest contexts.

Excerpt

In preparing this work I have benefited from discussions on specialised aspects of 1920s literature with my colleagues Len Platt and Frank Krause. Pippa Roscoe also kindly gave up some of her time to go sleuthing for me among the minutiae of detective plots. My children too deserve thanks for their forbearance during the more absorbing stages of composition. My principal debt, though, is to the series editor, Randall Stevenson, whose sustained encouragement, pertinent suggestions and timely corrections have made this a better book than it could have been without his guidance; needless to say, he is not to be held responsible for its specific arguments or emphases.
