The Edinburgh History of Twentieth Century Literature in Britain

  • Timely reassessment of a decade and its literature too often dismissed as apathetic and uninspiring
  • Comprehensive contextual coverage, situating texts within the wider cultural, literary and social movements of the era
  • Close-readings of neglected texts interrogate and extend received judgements on creative activity in the period
  • Tracing of defining themes across genres and national borders provides an innovative and truly inclusive study
