Contents:
Introduction: Narrative settlements -- The act of passing by: walking, the city novel, and its subjects -- The production of sexuality int he country house novel -- Subjunctive spaces and subjects: male bodies and the plots of imperialism -- Settling for less or bargaining for more? Regional novels and the body politics of Englishness.
Review: "Jennifer Poulos Nesbitt's Narrative Settlements resituates British women's writing between the wars in light of postcolonial theories of the novel and feminist geography. Reading works by Winifred Holtby, Vita Sackville-West, Angela Thirkell, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Rebecca West, and Virginia Woolf, Nesbitt argues that renewed attention to setting provides a methodological base for a more nuanced understanding of the aesthetic preoccupations of women writers between the wars. She provides not only attentive readings of literature during this contentious time, but a convincing argument for looking beyond modernism to locate the significance of interwar literary production."--BOOK JACKET.
