Mary Butts was an important figure in inter-war modernist circles and one who reviewed and associated with some of the major literary figures of the era, from T.S. Eliot to Gertrude Stein. Despite her importance and the varied nature of her writing, she has been a neglected figure in modernist scholarship. Providing a new analysis of the interwar literary period, Mary Butts and British Neo-Romanticism revisits her work - vividly experimental writings spanning memoir, poetry, polemic and fiction - through the lens of mid-20th-century British neo-Romanticism. The book argues that behind Butts's eco-feminist writings lies an intricate political and philosophical commentary.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book does much more, however, than recover a `forgotten' woman writer; it expertly excavates a broad historical and cultural terrain, including visual art, high modernist debates about art, and surrealist archaeological theory. -- Rochelle Rives, City University of New York, US * The Review of English Studies *
Successfully incorporates an emphasis upon the neo-romantic elements of Butts's work with a balanced and insightful assessment of its political implications. * The BARS Review *
