Abstract/Description: The work aims to explore the similarities and differences between Christopher Isherwood and W.H. Auden's 1930s literature. As unique authors within the decade, emphasizing artifice and aesthetics in relation to socially-conscious writing, both artists provide an interesting study of one sub-category of 1930s literature. Defining themselves against the likes of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, Auden and Isherwood attempt to retain the aesthetic-driven forms of 1920s Modernism while further melding them with more politically focused cultural trends.
