The revenge for love

Wyndham Lewis ; with an introduction by Paul Edwards

Published in the shadow of the Spanish Civil War, "The Revenge for Love" is a political thriller attacking the fraudulence and feeble-mindedness of life in the Britain of the 1930s. A brilliant satire on a world that has lost its sense of self and been seduced by the appeal of Communism, it is one of a handful of books (it could be compared to Orwell's "Coming Up for Air" or Koestler's "Darkness at Noon") which defined a particular mood and to today's audience gives an unparalleled sense of how Europe turned toxic on the eve of the Second World War. A major statement by a great artist and writer "The Revenge for Love" now deserves a new generation of readers and is the perfect introduction to Lewis' work.
