Men and Women Writers of the 1930s is a searching critique of the issues of memory and gender during this dynamic decade. Montefiore asks two principle questions; what part does memory play in the political literature of and about 1930s Britain? And what were the roles of women, both as writers and as signifying objects in constructing that literature?
Montefiore's topical analysis of 1930s mass unemployment, fascist uprise and 'appeasement' is shockingly relevant in society today. Issues of class, anti-fascist historical novels, post war memoirs of 'Auden generation' writers and neglected women poets are discussed at length. Writers include:
* George Orwell
* Virginia Woolf
* W.H. Auden
* Storm Jameson
* Jean Rhys
* Rebecca West

About the Author:

Jan Montefiore teaches English and Women's Studies at the University of Kent, and is the author of Feminism and Poetry (1987).

Review:

"This is a superb account of the role of memory in the examination of literature. Montefiore writes very penetratingly about Virginia Woolf and Rebecca West but also tries to restore the neglected talents of Sylvia Townsend Warner and Storm Jameson to their proper place in our attention. The decade has been well-ploughed as a field, but never so intelligently. On the male side of the account, she subjects George Orwell's writing to the best critique that I have ever read."
-Christopher Hitchens, "The Washington Post, 12/8/96
