Show Summary Details


This chapter outlines the diverse and unconventional religious publications of the Hogarth Press. It reveals that this is a good example of the way the Woolfs unexpectedly intervened in the public debate on social issues of the period. The chapter shows how the material was brought to the Woolfs during the 1920s, and studies Rose Macaulay's contribution to the Lectures on Literature series and J.C. Hardwick's to the Letters series. It views the Press as a place where class bias and cultural norms are constantly interrogated.
