This chapter examines the directly literary developments of 1928, studying the movement of modernism, along with Cyril Connolly's model of literary modernity. The next section takes a look at the war-books boom of 1928–30, which represents partly a revival of a masculine vernacular realism. Finally, the chapter discusses the central obsessions of 1920s literature.

Keywords:   literary developments, modernism, Cyril Connolly, literary modernity, war-books boom, masculine vernacular realism, central obsessions
