With an Introduction by Charlotte Mosley 'Their correspondence can make you rock with helpless laughter' Independent on Sunday Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh were two of the twentieth century's most amusing and gifted writers, who matched wits and traded literary advice in more than five hundred letters over twenty-two years. Dissecting their friends, criticizing each other's books and concealing their true feelings beneath a barrage of hilarious and knowing repartee, they found it far easier to conduct a friendship on paper than in person. This correspondence provides a colourful glimpse into the literary and social circles of London and Paris, during the Second World War and for twenty years after. 'Like wayward children, intent on outwitting the grown-ups who disapproved of their amusements' The New York Times

This volume contributes to the vibrant, ongoing recuperative work on women's writing by shedding new light on a group of authors commonly dismissed as middlebrow in their concerns and conservative in their styles and politics. The neologism 'interfeminism' - coined to partner Kristin Bluemel's 'intermodernism' - locates this group chronologically and ideologically between two 'waves' of feminism, whilst also forging connections between the political and cultural monoliths that have traditionally overshadowed them. Drawing attention to the strengths of this 'out-of-category' writing in its own right, this volume also highlights how intersecting discourses of gender, class and society in the interwar and post-war periods pave the way for the bold reassessments of female subjectivity that characterise second and third wave feminism. The essays showcase the stylistic, cultural and political vitality of a substantial group of women authors of fiction, non-fiction, drama, poetry and journalism including Vera Brittain, Storm Jameson, Nancy Mitford, Phyllis Shand Allfrey, Rumer Godden, Attia Hosain, Doris Lessing, Kamala Markandaya, Susan Ertz, Marghanita Laski, Elizabeth Bowen, Edith Pargeter, Eileen Bigland, Nancy Spain, Vera Laughton Matthews, Pamela Hansford Johnson, Dorothy Whipple, Elizabeth Taylor, Daphne du Maurier, Barbara Comyns, Shelagh Delaney, Stevie Smith and Penelope Mortimer. Additional exploration of the popular magazines Woman's Weekly and Good Housekeeping and new material from the Vera Brittain archive add an innovative dimension to original readings of the literature of a transformative period of British social and cultural history.

Christine Berberich shows that the English gentleman has proven to be a remarkably adaptable and relevant ideal that continues to influence not only literature but other forms of representation, including the media and advertising industries. Paying particular attention to the relationship of nostalgia to 'Englishness', Berberich demonstrates that twentieth-century depictions of the gentleman have much to tell us about rapidly changing conceptions of national, class, and gender identity.

The Second World War represents the most traumatic experience that British culture has undergone this century, and the story of that crisis has until now remained essentially unwritten and repressed. In Imagination at War Adam Piette analyses the fiction and poetry produced between 1939 and 1945 to uncover the dark imagination that has shaped postwar thinking, concealed behind the facade of public nostalgia for and glorification of the war. He finds broken minds drugged by the image of an embattled island; stories of ghostly private imaginations strangely remote from the world at war, yet pitilessly invaded by the lies bred by its propaganda. The war created a world of simulacra, screens, camouflage, and unreal enemies, while the Blitz turned the mind inwards at the same time as it emptied the self of private emotions. Looking closely at writers such as Alun Lewis, Evelyn Waugh, Alan Ross, and Elizabeth Bowen and at influential reviews such as Horizon, Piette captures the intellectual reaction to the war in Britain and the book acts as a corrective to those who feel that the 1939-1945 conflict takes second place to the First World War in terms of literary output and value.
