This chapter presents an analysis of Sylvia Townsend Warner's The Corner That Held Them and T.H. White's The Once and Future King, showing that while these novels differ in form and content, they have a common understanding of history. It determines that these intermodernist novels led the way for the postwar mode of ‘historicised fiction’.

Keywords: historicised fiction; intermodernist novels; postwar mode; Sylvia Townsend Warner; T.H. White
