    Abstract [en]

    Revisionist accounts of 1930s literature have questioned conventional critical divisions between politicized and modernist writing of the decade. Similar attempts have been made to reassess the distinctions between middlebrow and highbrow literature, but these have tended to accept middlebrow art as an unproblematic vehicle for middle-class values. Little attention has been paid to the popularity of middlebrow modes of representation among interwar writers on the left. Reading Winifred Holtby and Storm Jameson in relation to Virginia Woolf, this essay explores how politically committed novelists incorporated socialist ideas into their fiction to influence middle-class readers.

    Swedish Communism in Print, 1917–452017In: Twentieth Century Communism, ISSN 1758-6437, no 12, p. 169-199Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article traces a number of key moments in the formation and development of Sverges kommunistiska parti, sektion av Kommunistiska Internationalen (Communist Party of Sweden, section of the Communist International or SKP) through the lens of its major periodicals. The chronological scope is the transition of the party from a breakout group of the major parliamentary Sveriges socialdemokratiska arbetareparti (Social Democratic Worker’s Party or SAP) in 1917, through its Comintern days, splits, bumps, new directions, and battles with social democracy, to the height of its public support during the latter part of the Second World War. The history of the first three decades of Swedish communism is tightly bound up with the history of a small number of energetic individuals and the periodicals with which they were powerfully identified. Zeth (Zäta) Höglund and Ture Nerman were the two major figures in the foundational years and until the first party split in 1924. Later party leaders then took over the charge of the major publications. The spectrum of periodicals was broad, reaching from newspapers to magazines to reviews, some loyal others dissident, but all crucial for working out the forward path for the party at times of tumult and strife within its higher ranks. This article demonstrates the closely-knit links between party, people and periodicals during the rise of communism in Sweden. In their rich textuality and compositional complexity, each periodical provides a kaleidoscopic lens through which to study the ideas it mediates.

    The idea of Africa in Winifred Holtby's Mandoa Mandoa!2012In: Review of English Studies, ISSN 0034-6551, E-ISSN 1471-6968, Vol. 63, no 258, p. 118-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how Winifred Holtby’s writing was shaped by discourses on Africa and suggests that these coloured her writing more vividly than the feminism for which she is better known. I argue that she was deeply interested in the intellectual debates surrounding the League of Nations Union in the late 1920s. In particular, she explored the idea of ‘benign imperialism’ that so interested Leonard Woolf, and developed a socialist critique of imperialism that was rooted in the economic theories of African-American historian W. E. B. Du Bois. By paying attention to the influence of Du Bois on Holtby’s African novelMandoa, Mandoa! A Comedy of Irrelevance (1933), the article connects her journalism and propaganda for black workers’ rights to her fictional writing. It concludes by contrasting Mandoa, Mandoa! with Evelyn Waugh’s oddly similarBlack Mischief (1932) to show how their reception histories appear to account for the comparative neglect of the African story in Holtby scholarship.

    The question of socialist fiction and Sylvia Townsend Warner in the thirties2008In: Literature Compass, ISSN 1741-4113, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 657-667Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The 1930s was a time of crisis, ideological extremism and impending war. Few writers remained untouched by the political turmoil following the Great Depression in the West and Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The impulse of authors to involve themselves in politics at this time is suggested by the high number of radical and conservative periodicals flourishing in the 1930s. There also emerged divisive debate on the role of writers in shaping contemporary politics, battled out in a steady stream of international conferences. This article introduces one such controversy: the hostile debate between proponents of socialist writing and modernism culminating in the notorious Writers’ Congress in Moscow in 1934. I then look in more detail at how one Communist writer, Sylvia Townsend Warner, negotiated such debate in her journalism and literary writing: a regular contributor to the left-wing journal Left Review, Warner provides an illustrative example of a writer who bridged the gulf between ideas of writing as a purely political or aesthetic form of expression.

    Women’s writing and political activism in the 1930s2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the formative relationship between the writing and political activism of leftist women writers in Britain in the 1930s. It is divided into three parts, structured around investigations of Winifred Holtby, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Storm Jameson. Methodologically, the thesis is historico-biographical, drawing on biographical and historical material to inform a contextual reading of the primary texts and their authors. It documents a wide range of hitherto unexplored archival material—including unpublished correspondence, holograph drafts, lecture notes and recently released MI5 personal files—to show the attempts by Holtby, Warner and Jameson to establish new modes of writing which addressed both aesthetic and political issues.

    The study is divided into three parts, each covering one writer. The first part explores Holtby’s construction of herself as a professional woman writer in the early 1930s. It then traces the deep impact of race and class relations on Holtby’s writing, which arose largely from her work for black workers’ rights in South Africa. I conclude by exploring Holtby’s redefinition of the middlebrow mode of novel writing to incorporate radical politics. Part 2 investigates Warner’s conversion to Communism during the early years of the 1930s and the impact this had on redefining her engagement with the pastoral tradition. I go on to investigate the significance for Warner’s writing of her activism during the Spanish Civil War. The third part explores Jameson’s earlyattempts at socialist writing alongside her commitment to pacifism. Considering Jameson’s contempt for both modernism and popular literature, I then investigate her conception of what it is to be an ethical writer. Finally, I explore Jameson’s disillusionment with pacifism in light of the growing threat of Hitler and her tireless work to save refugee writers from persecution in continental Europe.
