Where were the women of the so-called `Auden Generation'?During this era of rapidly changing gender roles,social values and world politics,women produced a rich variety of poetry.But until now their work has largely been lost or ignored;in Women's Poetry of the 1930s Jane Dowson finally redresses the balance and recovers women's place in the literary history of the interwar years.This comprehensive and beautifully edited collection includes:

*Previously uncollected poems by authors such as Winifred Holtby and Naomi Mitchison

*Poems which are now out of print,such as those by Vita Sackville-West and Frances Cornford

*Poems previously neglected by poets including Ann Ridler and Sylvia Townsend Warner

*An extensive critical introduction and individual biographies of each poet

Poetry lovers,students and scholars alike will find Women's Poetry of the 1930s an invaluable resource and a collection to treasure.
