Reviews

'The essays offer a detailed outline of the diverse cultural, historical and political circumstances surrounding women's literary production in the first half of the twentieth century, paving the way for further in-depth engagement with these writers, and providing a critical overview that will be an invaluable support to such studies.' - Gemma Moss, The Journal of the Sylvia Townsend Warner Society
