From the Publisher

'Stewart's study offers an astute understanding of how writers during the 1940s conceived of the past, how they understood memory, and what they believed should be remembered and preserved for the future... it makes an important contribution to studies of the novel in the twentieth century.' - Carolyn Perry, Literature& History
