| Book Description: |
This new study rereads the literary response to a decade of trauma and transformation. Instead of separating the 1940s into before and after the war, it focuses on the entire decade and the themes which emerged from writers' involvement in and resistance to, the conflict. It examines popular and middlebrow writers, as well as literary authors.
