*Special issue of The Cambridge Quarterly: After Modernism?*

*About After Modernism?*
This special issue looks at the richly ambiguous middle decades of the
twentieth century, the years from 1930 to 1960. In a time of crisis, in
the shadow of war, a generation of English writers re-discovers the
potent virtues of the national-popular. They observe the urgent quest
for a newly imagined collective identity, a new heimlichkeit. They
emerge, in 1945, chastened yet still dissenting, to chronicle, to
question and to satirise a world of Coronation, Cold War and somnolent
consumerism. What power does the writer still possess in this, the
latest era of modernity?
