In this first book-length study of Stevie Smith, Romana Huk reassesses the work of this major twentieth-century woman writer as emerging not only from the practices of female literary modernism, but also from within the tumultuous cultural context of mid-century Europe. Huk considers both the poems and the novels in the light of their cultural and literary context. Amongst the work treated here is Smith's rarely discussed trilogy of novels: Novel on Yellow Paper , Over the Frontier and The Holiday .
ROMANA HUK is Associate Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame. She is co-editor ofContemporary British Poetry: Essays in Theory and Criticism(1996), editor ofAssembling Alternatives: Reading Postmodern Poetries Transnationally(2003) and author of numerous essays on contemporary poetics.
