History and value : the Clarendon lectures and the Northcliffe lectures, 1987

Frank Kermode

Frank Kermode returns to the literature of his youth to ask why we appear to have forgotten how urgent and powerful it seemed in a time of economic crisis and imminent world war. The general questions suggested by the title are answered first by a study of bourgeois left wing literature in the 1930s - including a case study of a forgotten novel of the period (Stephen Haggard's Nya, OPB, 1988) - and then by a consideration of the problem of value in work belonging to a period earlier than one's own. The last chapter concentrates on the most recent attempt to make these issues manageable - namely, postmodernism, which rejects all notions of wholeness, and speaks of a catastrophic break with the past.
