Summary
The years between the World Wars generated self-doubt and ideological crisis as Britain contemplated the devastation of World War I and the decline of empire that would transform the British novel. "The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins," wrote D. H. Lawrence in Lady Chatterley's Lover. This program examines the evolution of the British novel during the period 1919-39, spotlighting E. M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, Barbara Cartland, P. G. Wodehouse, Evelyn Waugh, Elizabeth Bowen, Jean Rhys, Robert Graves, T. H. White, Christopher Isherwood, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, and Graham Greene as well as some of their key works
