'Thinking Against the Current': Literature and Political Resistance by Sybil Oldfield

This collection of essays, written between 1970 and 2010, covers political subjects as diverse as 17th-century Quaker persecution history, the social impact of Malthus, the self-emancipation of English women, Eleanor Rathbone on the human rights of girls, and German women's resistance to Hitler. The more literary subjects include topics such as the social thinking of the English Romantics, Dickens' Great Expectations, Simone Weil's essays attacking militarism, and Virginia Woolf's opposition to the State, as well as contemporary American women poets on the problem of war. This book of passionate, lively essays is not merely a treasure trove for biographical researchers; it also introduces unfamiliar forebears who can help in the current struggle for a better world.
