The more literary subjects include topics such as the social thinking of the English Romantics, Dickens’ Great Expectations, Simone Weil’s essays attacking militarism, and Virginia Woolf’s opposition to the State, as well as contemporary American women poets on the problem of war. This book of passionate, lively essays is not merely a treasure trove for biographical researchers; it also introduces unfamiliar forebears who can help in the current struggle for a better world."@en ;
