John Cooper vividly recalls the dark days of the Second World War - air raids, rationing, Home Guard manoeuvres, prisoners of war on the doorstep and the excitement of VE Day - and the long, carefree days of post-war childhood that followed, when the pace of life was much gentler than today. The author recalls local shops, now long gone, such as Harriden's grocery store and Mr Lines the blacksmith, as well as Harpenden's two cinemas, in one of which he was briefly employed as a projectionist. Memories of the glittering Festival of Britain and Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation celebrations, together with a nostalgic journey back to Harpenden, round off this trip down memory lane, which will surely appeal to anyone interested in the history of Hertfordshire within living memory

Kanner (UCLA Center for the Study of Women) considers this a bibliomethodology, with each of the approximately 800 entries consisting of: the author's biographical data, information on the author from her autobiography, content analysis of the autobiography, and the author's place in a sociohistorical context. Commencing in the 1700s with Quaker preacher Elizabeth Ashbridge and Charlotte Clarke, actress, playwright, novelist, and cross-dresser, the tour concludes with 20th century activist Mary Whitehouse. Helpful tools include: an introduction on feminist response to literary theory and forces shaping women's self-narrative, Author Index of Twenty-Year Cohorts, Identification Index (of the authors' self-assigned designations), and Guide to Abbreviations and Terminology.

WINNER of the British Academy's Rose Mary Crawshay Literary Prize This study offers an authoritative introduction to Elizabeth Bowen’s works, revealing both their pleasures for the fiction-addict and their fascinations for the literary critic, theorist, and historian. It also provides a lucid introduction - by demonstration - to psychoanalytic modes of reading, and shows how such readings are enriched by an understanding of the writer’s life and times. Elizabeth Bowen is one of the finest writers of fiction in English in the twentieth century. She is also one of the strangest. Born in 1899 into the Anglo-Irish Protestant ascendancy, she saw herself as the same age as her war-torn century. Her historical vision extends from the Irish Troubles of the 1920s to the London Blitz and the technological revolution of the post-war years. Her fiction is always entertaining - funny, moving, and suspenseful - but it is also profoundly disconcerting. Maud Ellmann teases out Bowen’s strangeness through close readings informed by historical, psychoanalytic, and deconstructive methods of interpretation. She contextualises Bowen’s work in the Irish and modernist traditions to investigate connections between her life and writing; her conflicts and complicities with other Irish, British, and European writers; her negotiations with contemporary history, and with the long decline of the Anglo-Irish Protestant ascendancy; her peculiar take on gender and sexuality; her hallucinatory treatment of objects, particularly furniture and telephones; and the surprising ways in which her writing pre-empts and in some cases confounds the literary theories brought to bear upon it. Bowen’s writing is demonstrated to reach from a Dickensian comprehensiveness to an uncanny premonition of postmodernism.
