Overworked teachers in W Darch’s school stories


“[Winifred Darch’s] novels confront the myth of the underworked, overpaid woman teacher head-on especially with her description and narration of the embodied work of teachers.” (p.13)

“As is common in some adult school fiction, some of the most viscerally represented scenes of overwork involve grading homework and exams”  (p.13)
