The Social Context of Modern English Literature - Malcolm BradburyBasil Blackwell, 1972, Paperback.
Condition: Good+. Gently faded at the spine. Lightly rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Text bright and tight.
This book is an exploration of the forces that have shaped modem writing, affected its production, publishing and consumption, changed its structure and altered the organization of literary culture. Its author, a literary critic, writer and novelist, makes use of sociological methods and concepts while stressing that literature and social reality, as the sociologist sees them, cannot be regarded as distinct. Rather both are ways in which we structure our sense of what reality is.
