The article surveys, summarises and assesses the critical reception and cultural reputation
of Sylvia Townsend Warner. It recalls the very limited role women writers played in
Montefiore’s own university experience as a student of English and discusses their
growing prominence in the 1980s and beyond under the influence of the feminism of
that time and in particular of feminist publishing houses.
