Summary
"In the first full-length study of modernism and World War II, Maria MacKay offers historical readings of Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, T.S. Eliot, Henry Green and Evelyn Waugh, set against the dramatic background of national struggle and transformation. In recovering how these major authors engaged with other texts of their time - political discourses, mass and middlebrow culture - this study reveals how World War II brought to the surface the underlying politics of modernism's aesthetic practices. Through close analyses of the revisions made to modernist thinking after 1939, MacKay establishes the significance of this persistently neglected phase of modern literature as a watershed moment in twentieth-century literary history."--BOOK JACKET
