Palpable Realities, Politics and Thirties Histories

Steven Matthews

Abstract

I take it that, when thinking through notions of literature and history

in the Thirties, and of the Thirties text in history, it is essential to look

at the ways in which the text has become established within historical

narratives of the Thirties, as well as the relationship to history which

the text seeks to establish for itself. For the two seem curiously interwoven

in the subsequent formulations of the distinctiveness of the

period, whereby claims made in the Thirties find their absolute echoes

in later narratives of its ideas and patternings.
