Men and women writers of the 1930s : the dangerous flood of history by Jan Montefiore( Book )
16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 388 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
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 the final section, 'Culture and feminist theory' the author examines the constructions of gendered identity in a variety of contexts: poetic ambiguity, girls' school stories and psychoanalytic debates." "Written with Montefiore's customary lucidity, elegance and wit, this book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in feminist literary studies, women's poetry and the problems of modern writing."--Jacket
In time's eye : essays on Rudyard Kipling ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 140 libraries worldwide
The theme of Kipling in history unites these rich, diverse treatments of Kipling's relationship to historical institutions of rule, of his work's subjection to time and change, and of his many-sided artistry. Challenging received opinion, breaking new ground in Kipling scholarship, and contributing substantially to the cultural history of Britain, these essays on Kipling's attitudes to the First World War, to the culture of Edwardian England, to homosexuality and to Jewishness bring together historical, literary critical and postcolonial approaches to this perennially controversial writer. The Introduction situates the book in the context of Kipling's changing reputation and of recent Kipling scholarship. After the perspectives of Chesterton (1905), Orwell (1942) and Jarrell (1960), newer contributions address Kipling's approach to the Boer war, his involvement with World War One, his Englishness and the politics of literary quotation. Different aspects of Kipling's relation to India are explored, including the 'Mutiny', Eastern religions, his Indian travel writings and his knowledge of 'the vernacular'. This collection, whose contributors include Hugh Brogan, Dan Jacobson, Daniel Karlin and Bryan Cheyette, is essential reading for academics and students of Kipling, Victorian and Edwardian English literature and cultural history. -- from back cover
Rudyard Kipling by Jan Montefiore( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 78 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."--Jacket
