ENGLISH 141C: Facts and Fictions: British Writing in the 1930s and the Rise of Fascism

In contemporary American politics where the phrase ¿alternative facts¿ has entered our lexicon in a post-truth attempt at media control, and where the activation of Brexit returns to Britain a little England model of insular nationalism, it might be a good time to return to the concerns of British writers in the 1930s about nationalism, militarism, and the politics of language. Well aware of nativist risks in a post-Depression era, as well as the loss of progressive ideals (unevenly) cultured during the 1920s, these writers explored the relationship and stakes between words and politics as they faced an increasingly fascistic continent. Writers include: G. Orwell, S. Jameson, W. Holtby, V. Brittain, N. Michinson, E. Waugh, S. Gibson, L. Woolf, V.Woolf, A. Huxley, W.H. Auden, C.Isherwood
