Description - Women's Fiction Between the Wars by Heather Ingman
Offering critical analyses of Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Richardson, Ivy Compton-Burnett, Elizabeth Bowen, Rose Macaulay and Jean Rhys, this work draws parallels between their work and that of female psychoanalysts Helene Deutsch, Melanie Klein and Karen Horney during the inter-war period. It combines theoretical and textual criticism within a specific historical context, and concludes that these writers look to the mother to empower them and challenges the view of the mother as a regressive influence.
