The Edinburgh Companion to Twentieth-Century Literatures in English

Cary Nelso

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter discusses the Great Depression and the real and symbolic force presented by Madrid under siege. It shows what it meant to be a writer on the Left during the Depression, and identifies the different motives of the progressive political literature of the 1930s. The chapter also looks at the topics produced by the war, which were unlike anything in early twentieth-century poetry.

Keywords:   Great Depression, writer, Left, political culture, poetry
