Dealing with women writers of the liberal-left in the 1930s, this volume aims to examine what is radical about women's writing, and draws attention to richness, diversity and complexity of texts which have often been omitted or marginalised in critical discussion of the period. The contributors offer an understanding of the political to encompass a range of concerns including matters of race, class, nation, sexuality, personal relationships and the uses and abuses of power. Three essays revisit the work of Virginia Woolf, and a flexible notion of both modernism and realism is suggested in the book. Authors covered include Elizabeth von Arnim, Vera Britain, Elizabeth Bowen, Katharine Burdekin, Nancy Cunard, Storm Jameson, Rosamond Lehmann, Naomi Mitchison, Jean Rhys, Stevie Smith, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Rebecca West and Virginia Woolf.
