AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Modjeska argues that the complex narrative structure of The Little Company invites the reader to participate in the textual dialogue with society. In the novel political questions are deeply entwined with personal questions and many of these issues find parallels in Eleanor Dark's life. Modjeska argues that the behaviour of people during the extraordinary period of the Second World War reveals the contradictory experiences of several characters in the novel and demonstrates the effect that social conditions can have on identity.
