Omtale Fascism and Anti-Fascism in Twentieth-Century British Fiction
This book investigates the impact of fascism on twentieth-century British fiction. With a solid archival underpinning, Suh locates anti-fascist counter-strategies in middlebrow genres associated with women writers (domestic fiction, melodrama, country house novels, and family sagas) and makes the powerful argument that these rhetorical and narrative strategies emerge as the most durable. Presenting works by Phyllis Bottome, Nancy Mitford, Elizabeth Bowen, Virginia Woolf, and Muriel Spark, the book shifts the focus from high modernism and its heirs, widely considered the most important sites of literary conceptions of the political, to the under explored feminist anti-fascist strategies inherent to middlebrow fiction.
