Summary

The forty years between 1890 and 1929 were the most fertile and diverse period of the British novel. The first of two volumes covering these years, DLB Volume 34 focuses on the Traditionalists whose works by and large reflect an affinity in form and content with the novelistic tradition established in the 19th century. Although many of the novelists included in this volume reveal a new awareness of the moral self, an irony exists at the unquestioned goals of progress, the injustices of society and a controlled subjectivity.

32 entries include: G.K. Chesterton, Joseph Conrad, Marie Corelli, Ford Madox Ford, E.M. Forster, Rudyard Kipling, H.H. Munro (Saki), Sylvia Townsend Warner, H.G. Wells, Oscar Wilde and P.G. Wodehouse.
