Elizabeth Maslen reassesses fiction written by women between the granting of universal franchise and the advent of new wave feminism. Through close readings of a wide range of novels, she analyzes how writers chose to represent such issues as pacifism and the threat of fascism, war, race and class, and gender, exploring in the process how the writers' priorities affect their decisions on how to write.

She has written on Doris Lessing for the British Council series, Writers and their Work, and several articles on such twentieth-century writers as W.H.
