Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: World War II saw women fully involved and experiencing work outside the home. Their sense of the temporary nature of this new role is reflected in the fiction of the era, where the heroine's work remained a prelude to her return to domesticity. Their relative freedom is also seen in the portrayal of women fulfilling a range of roles at one time - mother, worker, home-maker. From the Blitz to secret surveillance, from film and radio to letter-writing, women wrote about it all and this text offers a criticism of the work produced during that period. A range of authors are discussed including: Elizabeth Bowen; Olivia Manning; Rosamond Lehmann; Rose Macaulay; and Stevie Smith. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1860490808
Inhaltsangabe: The Second World War saw women fully involved and experiencing work outside the home; the temporary nature of their new role was echoed in the fiction of the era, where the heroine's work remained a prelude to her return to domesticity. Their relative freedom is also reflected in wartime fiction that saw women fulfil a range of roles at one time -mother, worker, home-maker. From the blitz to secret surveillance, from film and radio to letter-writing, women wrote about it all and here Jenny Hartley offers a fascinating and enlightening criticism, discussing a range of authors including: Elizabeth Bowen, Olivia Manning, Rosamond Lehmann, Rose Macaulay and Stevie Smith.
