This collection of original critical chapters launches a long-term project marking out a new period and style in twentieth-century literary history. It covers the fiction, memoirs, criticism and journalism of writers such as Elizabeth Bowen, Storm Jameson, William Empson, George Orwell, J. B. Priestley, Harold Heslop, T. H. White, John Grierson, Margery Allingham and Stella Gibbons, focusing on the qualities that distinguish these writers' literary efforts from those of the modernists or postmodernists. The chapters focus on three kinds of intermodern features in texts that are typically ignored in accounts of modernism or the Auden Generation: cultural features (intermodernists typically represent working-class and working middle-class cultures), political features (intermodernists are typically radical) and literary features (intermodernists are committed to non-canonical genres). The book concludes with an appendix, ‘Who Were the Intermodernists?’, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources.
