This volume reshapes our understanding of British literary culture from 1945-1975 by exploring the richness and diversity of women’s writing of this period. Essays by leading scholars reveal the range and intensity of women writers’ engagement with post-war transformations including the founding of the Welfare State, the gradual liberalization of attitudes to gender and sexuality and the reconfiguration of Britain and the empire in the context of the Cold War. Attending closely to the politics of form, the sixteen essays range across ‘literary’, ‘middlebrow’ and ‘popular’ genres, including espionage thrillers and historical fiction, children’s literature and science fiction, as well as poetry, drama and journalism. They examine issues including realism and experimentalism, education, class and politics, the emergence of ‘second-wave’ feminism, responses to the Holocaust and mass migration and diaspora. The volume offers an exciting reassessment of women’s writing at a time of radical social change and rapid cultural expansion.

The first in-depth study of the landmark modern feminist magazine, Time and Tide This book reconstructs the first two decades of Time and Tide(1920-1939) and explores the periodical's significance for an interwar generation of British women writers and readers. Unique in establishing itself as the only female-run intellectual weekly in the golden age of the weekly review, Time and Tideboth challenged persistent prejudices against women's participation in public life and played an instrumental role in redefining women's gender roles and identities. Drawing on extensive new archival research Catherine Clay recovers the contributions to this magazine of both well-and lesser-known British women writers, editors, critics, and journalists and explores a cultural dialogue about literature, politics and the arts that took place beyond the parameters of modernist 'little magazines'. The book makes a major contribution to the history of women's writing and feminism in Britain between the wars. Key Features The first in-depth study, based on extensive new archival research, of the richest two decades of this landmark feminist magazine Shows how this female-run periodical secured a position among the leading general-audience intellectual weeklies of the day by tracing its close interdependence, and competition, within a changing set of interwar periodical structures and networks Recovers the contributions to this magazine of both well-known and undeservedly forgotten British women writers and critics Explores a cultural dialogue about literature, politics and the arts that took place beyond the parameters of modernist 'little magazines' and mass-market periodicals
