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. 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 of Contemporary British Poetry: Essays in Theory and Criticism (1996), editor of Assembling Alternatives: Reading Postmodern Poetries Transnationally (2003) and author of numerous essays on contemporary poetics.
