Description

British Literature and Culture in Second World Wartime examines the Second World War as a pivotal moment for British literature and culture, in terms of national and historical self-understanding, as well as its impact on the longstanding relationship between modernism and time. Encompassing literature, film, photography, and painting, and drawing on new archival research and philosophies of time, the book explores how figures sought to represent the experience of mid-century wartime as a vexed temporality between repetition and imaginary, retrospection and anticipation. It demonstrates how and why the Second World War shaped the concept of a chronophobic modern wartime.
