AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The literary modernisms of [Nettie] Palmer and[Susannah] Prichard's generation were not a belated response to European and American developments, nor did they arise as a response to the trauma and tragedy of the Great War. Their engagement with Western European literary modernism stemmed from their direct experiences with 'the men of 1914' in London and America. When we begin with the situated perspectives of different women and understand writers as embodied subjects as a source of analytical power, new readings are possible.' (p134)
