Abstract:
"This is the first book to deal exclusively with women writers of the liberal-left in the 1930s. The volume has a double purpose: to examine what is radical about women's writing and to draw attention to the richness, diversity and complexity of texts which have often been omitted or marginalised in critical discussion of the period. The contributors offer a broad understanding of the political to encompass a wide range of concerns including matters of race, class, nation, sexuality, personal relationships, and the uses and abuses of power."--Jacket.
