Description

'Freewomen and Supermen' examines the progressive, innovative, and sometimes wildly eccentric nature of radical thought in the Edwardian period and shows how Edwardian radical thought was to play a crucial role in the development of literary modernism.

This is the best book on literary modernism I have read in the last couple of years ... I have yet to read a book that better condenses the absolute essence ... of those first two or three decades of the twentieth century with which we are so eternally fascinated. What it achieves, and achieves so brilliantly, is the setting of a comprehensive scene into which we can situate our knowledge. And what's more, our existing knowledge of the period ... suddenly seems to make more sense: the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle slip silently and easily into place ... a captivating, wonderful read ... I cannot recommend this book highly enough
