Description

The Georgian movement in literature began as a reaction against late Victorian sensibilities, but world events soon turned this nascent movement upside down, killing two of its most famous members and dispersing the rest amidst a harsher intellectual climate. This introductory study helps to set the Georgians in their original context, and revises the critical balance in favour of three lesser known writers whose contribution to early twentieth-century letters was viewed as significant before the 1930s. The author makes use of archive sources and reviews as wellas recent historicist accounts, bringing these engaging, mysterious and humane writers into focus for the present time.
