Praise for The Reimagining of Place in English Modernism

“The Reimagining of Place in English Modernism . . . delineates a rival strand of aesthetic modernism receptive to pastoral edge-lands and sparsely populated border zones. The Reimagining of Place affirms Powys and Butts as trenchant yet radically ambivalent commentators on the socio-economic and technological innovations of the era. This is a particularly welcome intervention that challenges received opinion by offering dynamic close readings of literary figures who feature only briefly in standard accounts of the high modernist project.”
