Pater to Forster, 1873-1924 covers a interval frequently named as an "age of transition", which exists uneasily among the obvious ethical certainties of the Victorian age and the arrival of a modernist aesthetics of instability and uncertainty. Ruth Robbins considers a number of the relevant literary different types and issues of the interval in writings via significant and "minor" writers--decadence, realism and naturalism, nostalgia, New girl writing, degeneration, imperialism and early modernism--to create a posh photograph of transitions, continuities and breaks with the earlier.
