C20th British Novelists:Making Connections


To complement the BBC / OU co-production In Their Own Words and the OU’s array of literature and creative writing courses, we’re joining the dots of the literary landscape of twentieth century Britain to give you the chance to discover the connections between authors.

Pick an author to reveal the surprisingly complex network of connections and relationships they had with their peers. Explore the love and the loathing they felt for each other, their shared genres and backgrounds and the passions and the occupations that drew them together.
