    Abstract:
    This article gestures to the 1930s through 1950s inter­national anarchist literary networks that ran from Paris to London and Athens, Cairo and Alexandria, Shang­hai, Oxford and Cambridge, New York and San Francisco, and finally Big Sur and Vancouver. The distribution across these nodes was intense and sustained, but this project only hints at the historical recuperation in order to contex­tualize a more focused revision of critical approaches to the Canadian novelist Elizabeth Smart in her 1945 work By Grand Central Station I Sat Down And Wept.
