My paper: Making an Incision: Penelope Mortimer’s early fiction
Mortimer’s work has been all but eclipsed by the bigger names that would follow her in the 1960s, but this paper seeks to resituate her in a post-war female literary history committed to foregrounding female experience in a rapidly changing cultural landscape.
