Synopsis

In British Women Writers of World War II , Phyllis Lassner offers a challenging analysis of politicized literature in which such British women writers as Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Bowen, Stevie Smith and Storm Jameson debated the `justness' of World War II. Lassner questions prevailing approaches to women's war writing by exploring the complex range of pacifist and activist literary forms of women who redefined such pieties as patriotism and duty and heroism and victimization.

PHYLLIS LASSNER teaches Women's Studies, Jewish Studies, and Writing at Northwestern University, Illinois, USA. She is the author of two books on Elizabeth Bowen, essays on British women writers of the interwar and World War II periods, and the introduction to a rediscovered feminist classic, the 1910 novel by Karin Michaelis, The Dangerous Age.
