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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Severin provides valid reasons why cultural historians, feminists, and literary scholars should pay attention to the works of Stevie Smith. She argues that within Smith's work lies an effort to resist the conservative domestic ideology of her time, and that the techniques Smith employed in her writings, drawings, and performance poetry, are utilized as forms of resistance."--Jack V. Barbera, University of Mississippi

"A fine contribution to Smith scholarship, one that helps us understand a period in twentieth-century British literary history that has never received the kind of attention that either earlier or very contemporary British literature has."--Ann Ardis, University of Delaware
