Book Description

11 Feb 2013 0415581648 978-0415581646

This volume offers a comprehensive representation of the exciting, pivotal, and urgent nature of literary Modernism, as well as more recent approaches including the "global turn." Modernism can be difficult to understand without an awareness of contemporary concerns, so Mia Carter and Alan Friedman incorporate texts from a wide variety of disciplines such as art, politics, science, medicine, and philosophy.

This volume's thoroughly explained, informative, and interesting discussions provide:

  • An extensive introduction outlining the history and debates surrounding the movement
  • Numeruos foundational texts of Modernism such as Darwin, Duncan, Nietzsche, Einstein, Freud, Hughes, Luxemburg, Nietzsche, Stein, Zola
  • Full texts and extracts representing Modernist writers - including Anand, Conrad, Eliot, James, Hurston, Lawrence, Wilde, Woolf and Yeats, as critics of themselves and their contemporaries
  • A chronology of key historical events and publications
  • A glossary of key terms, people, theories and themes
  • A detailed further reading section offering advice on further study and research
  • A companion website (www.routledge.com/cw/carter) featuring an interactive timeline with dates and images that contextualise the literature of the period, as well as author biographies and links to additional resources and videos.

Addressing current as well as historical debates about Modernism, this book includes discussion of the Harlem Renaissance, feminism and women’s writing, international and global movements and anti-imperialism, while acknowledging the variety of competing modernisms. This is the ideal guide for anyone seeking an overview and an in-depth treatment of this complex cultural turn and its foundational texts.

Product Description

Review

"This expertly assembled, comprehensive volume will be an indispensible reference work to students and teachers. Modernism and Literature demonstrates the interdisciplinary scope as well as the global relevance of modernism." Anita Patterson, Associate Professor of English, Boston University

"This exciting new anthology of modernist literature and culture will undoubtedly become an indispensable resource for readers, teachers, and researchers alike. The volume, with its carefully framed conjunction of texts, offers us a newly textured terrain and will certainly generate new perspectives on modernism." Dr. Anna Snaith, Reader in Twentieth-Century Literature, King’s College London

"Wide-ranging and multifaceted, Modernism and Literature combines extensive introductions to well-selected readings with an excellent critical apparatus. It amounts to the closest single volume there is to a comprehensive resource for graduate and undergraduate courses on Modernism." Peter Childs, Professor of Modern English Literature, University of Gloucestershire

"This reader impressively captures the modernist sense of excitement, danger and novelty. With its enterprising mix of familiar and less familiar texts, Modernism and Literature will be a major resource for students of the period." Peter Nicholls, Professor of English, New York University

"This will be an extremely helpful text for students, providing them a deeper historical sense of the roots of Modernism than most other anthologies, as well as a wider perspective in global sources." Susan Weisser, Adelphi University

"Mia Carter and Alan Friedman have done a wonderful job of providing us with a new primary map and with new highlighted routes connecting the various capitals of modernist studies. I wish I had had the book in my hands twenty years ago." Joshua Weiner, Associate Professor of English, University of Maryland, College Park
