(p.1) Introduction
Literature, Cinema and Politics 1930-1945

Lara Feigel

Edinburgh University Press

This book reads between the frames of 1930s literature and cinema, exploring the politics of the engagement (or entanglement) of the two media. The 1930s and 1940s saw the birth and death of a tradition of politically committed filmic British writing which overtly aligned the socialist and the cinematic. It also brings together a wide cross-section of the 1930s Left, allowing Walter Allen, W.H. Auden, and Virginia Woolf to brush shoulders, politically and aesthetically. Moreover, it tries to restore the excitement and hope to the ‘morbid’ inter-war decade. Finally, the chapters included in this book are given.

Keywords:   British writing, Walter Allen, W.H. Auden, Virginia Woolf, literature, cinema
