This dissertation examines the intersection of patriotism and grief in the interwar literature and culture of England, Scotland, and Ireland. In poetry and fiction by Virginia Woolf, Edwin Muir, and Elizabeth Bowen, I find evidence of a form of melancholic patriotism, a mode of national attachment that declines to sever all ties with a problematic national past while fostering a critical rather than nostalgic perspective on the problem of national belonging
