About this book

Introduction

Rosamond Lehmann is normally seen as a romantic novelist, whose gift lies in her delicate analysis of the emotional fabric of women's lives. This study challenges this view of Lehmann by placing her work within the modernist tradition of literary experiment and its associated questioning of gender. Through close readings of the novels, Judy Simons shows how Lehmann continually re-writes traditional narratives in order to demolish the myth of romance, while yet admitting its seductive power. '... an affectionate ... incisive ... stimulating read'. Yorkshire Post
