Introducing a Special Collection focused on exploring the engagement of artists, writers and intellectuals with Britain’s relationship to Europe, this short essay reflects on common strands and recurring themes in such engagement across a turbulent century. It draws out parallels between three time periods covered by articles included in the collection: the inter-war period, the immediate aftermath of the Second World War, and the period from the 1970s to the EU referendum.
