This study of the writer Stevie Smith (1902-1971), portrays her as a well-connected literary insider who used many genres to resist domestic ideology in Britain. Perhaps best known for her poetry, Smith also produced novels, short stories, literary reviews, drawings and performance art. The book explores the connections between Smith's work and mass media production; 20th-century historical events; her romantic and Victorian predecessors; and such contemporaries as Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Parker, Aldous Huxley, and Evelyn Waugh.
