About this title


This book examines the ways in which the artists and writers of the 1940s developed and extended approaches from earlier English Romanticism to provide a direct and compassionate response to the reality of contemporary destruction. It begins by analyzing the growing interest in Romanticism in the 20s and 30s and then looks closely at key works of the war years to show how they may be seen as "Romantic". Paintings by Keith Vaughan, Graham Sutherland, Henry Moore and others is discussed along with writing by Graham Greene, Elizabeth Bowen, Dylan Thomas and T.S.Eliot, to show how these more recent figures adapted and extended the earlier vision.
