The Woman's Historical Novel : British Women Writers, 1900-2000 Paperback / softback
The historical novel has been one of the most important forms of women's reading and writing in the twentieth century, yet it has been consistently under-rated and critically neglected.
In the first major study of British women writers' use of the genre, Diana Wallace tracks its development across the century.
She combines a comprehensive survey with detailed readings of key writers, including Naomi Mitchison, Georgette Heyer, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Margaret Irwin, Jean Plaidy, Mary Renault, Philippa Gregory and Pat Barker.
