Cunningham, Valentine. British Writers of the Thirties (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1988)
A wide-ranging discussion, offering interpretations of central texts of the period in relation to social, political, historical and personal contexts. Centres on male writers (Auden, Day Lewis, Isherwood, Spender), but a number of women are discussed, including Bowen, Christie, Gibbons, Holtby, Leavis, Lehmann, Mitchison, Sayers and Woolf.
