Men and women writers of the 1930s the dangerous flood of history by Jan Montefiore( Computer File )
15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,245 libraries worldwide
"Men and Women Writers of the 1930s is an original and important study of memory and gender in the literature of this tragic decade. Montefiore asks two principal questions: 'What part has memory played in the political literature of and about the 1930s?'and 'What were the roles of women, both as writers and as symbols, in constructing the literature?' ... Montefiore's analysis of issues such as mass unemployment, fascism, the tensions in pre-war Yugoslavia and 'appeasement' is shockingly relevant to society today. Anti-fascist historical novels, the post-war memoirs of 'Auden generation' writers, travel writing and neglected women poets are discussed at length"--BOOK JACKET

Rudyard Kipling by Jan Montefiore( file )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 188 libraries worldwide
"Rudyard Kipling was a Victorian and an early modernist, a disciplinarian imperialist who sympathized with children and outlaws, a globe-trotter who mythologized 'Old England', and a world-famous author whom intellectuals despised. The central theme of this book is the way his work and its reception are both fissured and energized by these contradictions. This thorough study initially discusses Kipling's ambivalent knowing attitude to unknowable otherness, his rhetorical imitations of Indian and demotic vernaculars, his work ethic and ideal of imperialist masculinity, thus contextualizing the central discussion of his masterpiece Kim which, almost uniquely, takes Indian otherness as a source of pleasure, not anxiety. Jan Montefiore describes Kipling as a writer on the cusp of modernity, examining how his fiction and poetry engaged with radio, cinema and air travel, how his poetry anticipated and influenced the subversive uncertainties of modernism, and how his post-war contributions to the literature of mourning undermined their own overt traditionalism." --Book Jacket
Arguments of heart and mind : selected essays 1977-2000 by Jan Montefiore( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 168 libraries worldwide
"In these essays a leading feminist critic and authority on women's poetry sets the terms for debate on identity, gender and tradition by exploring what it has meant to write in the twentieth century. Women's poetry is the dominant but not exclusive preoccupation of the book. The opening essays deal with women's poetry and the construction of traditions, from the pioneering 'In her own image: contemporary women poets' out of which Montefiore's Feminism and Poetry grew, to intertextual readings of women poets of World War I, of the 1930s, and of American feminists. The central section 'Writers and readings' engages closely with admired writers - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, D. J. Enright, Kipling, Adrienne Rich, Edgell Rickword, Sylvia Townsend Warner
