This chapter takes a look at the Hogarth Press within the wider landscape of the early twentieth-century women's writing, demonstrating the degree to which the Press's circles intersected with other circles that are considered outside its purview. It suggests that the Woolfs broke away from mainstream publishing practices as they presented a setting for the more strictly academic work of middlebrow women writers, specifically E.M. Delafield and Rose Macaulay. The chapter also looks at how the Woolfs, Delafield and Macaulay challenged the established notions on class and culture.
