Where were the women of the so-called `Auden Generation'? During this era of rapidly changing gender roles, social values and world politics, women produced a rich variety of poetry. But until now their work has largely been lost or ignored: in Women's Poetry of the 1930s , Jane Dowson finally redresses the balance and recovers women's place in the literary history of the interwar years. This comprehensive and beautifully edited collection of richly varied poems includes: * Previously uncollected poems by authors such as Winifred Holtby and Naomi Mitchison * Poems which are now out of print, such as those by Vita Sackville-West and Frances Cornford * Poems previously neglected by poets including Ann Ridler and Sylvia Townsend Warner * An extensive critical introduction and individual biographies of each poet This unique anthology sheds a whole new light on women's place in this era of British literary history and demands a reassessment of our understanding of 1930s poetry. This will be invaluable resource and a treasured volume for students, scholars and poetry enthusiasts alike.
