Literary Englands: Versions of 'Englishness' in Modern Writing

封面
Cambridge University Press, 1993年10月21日 - 280 頁
In our time TEnglishnesst has become a theme for speculation rather than dogma; twentieth-century writers have found it an elusive and ambivalent concept, a cue for nostalgia or for a sense of exile and loss. Literary Englands meditates on the contemporary meanings of TEnglishnesst and explores some of the ways in which a sense of nationality has informed and shaped the work of a range of writers including Edward Thomas, Forster and Lawrence, Leavis and George Sturt, Orwell and Evelyn Waugh, Betjeman, Larkin and Geoffrey Hill.
