This is the first collection of essays devoted to the work of this much under-rated and important twentieth-century writer. The essays engage with some of the variety of Warner’s output – for example, her short fiction, letters and fantasy writing – as well as her major novels. This collection includes a range of approaches to the work of a writer who has much to say to contemporary readers and whose work, long appreciated by feminist readers in particular, is now being reconsidered by academic critics and a wider audience. The volume acknowledges the important connections between Warner’s writing and her life and political beliefs, and investigates Warner’s transformation of genre and convention throughout her fiction.2008 0-7734-4978-7
