Mary Butts and British Neo-Romanticism : The Enchantment of Place Paperback / softback


Mary Butts was an important figure in inter-war modernist circles and one who reviewed and associated with some of the major literary figures of the era, from T.S.

Eliot to Gertrude Stein. Despite her importance and the varied nature of her writing, she has been a neglected figure in modernist scholarship.

Providing a new analysis of the interwar literary period, Mary Butts and British Neo-Romanticism revisits her vividly experimental writings spanning memoir, poetry, polemic and fiction through the lens of mid-20th-century British neo-Romanticism.

The book argues that behind Butts's eco-feminist writings lies an intricate political and philosophical commentary.
