Wartime & Aftermath: English Literature & Its Background, 1939-60

Wartime & Aftermath: English Literature & Its Background, 1939-60 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This accessible new survey of British writers since 1939 reveals how literature in Britain was affected by the most devastating war in history, and how it engaged with public events and private feelings during the fighting and throughout the long aftermath of recovery. Drawing on a rich variety of sources, Bernard Bergonzi, one of Britain's leading critics, discusses the work of such writers as Graham Greene, Elizabeth Bowen, Evelyn Waugh, Joyce Cary, T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, Angus Wilson, Philip Larkin, Iris Murdoch, and William Golding. Written for general readers as well as for students of literature and history, this perceptive study provides a readable and informative introduction to the literature of modern Britain.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 220-223) and index.
