Overview

In this highly readable and convincing exploration of Englishness as a problematic concept, Dulcie Everitt combines historical, political, and literary analysis to re-examine the nature of Englishness. BrexLit offers readers the opportunity to step outside of the chaos, to reflect, and in many cases, to heal from the dismal anxiety of the present.
