Product description


"This is the best guide to the Scylla and Charybdis of Modernism; the quickest and easiest way of navigating the cultural historical currents, and the surest means of edging along the critical and theoretical reefs that so many other textbooks have foundered on."
- Dr Rod Mengham, University of Cambridge, UK

"The books in this series of Literature and Culture Handbooks are aimed primarily at undergraduate students which aim of acting as both a guide and a reference text reflecting the advances in academic studies." The Use of English, Spring 2010

The book uses a number of aids- from boxes highlighting important concepts or authors, to neat summaries of chapters, to a detailed glossary of terms and concepts, to an excellent annotated bibliography- to help students coming to modernism for the first time gain a foothold in what is an incredibly large field of study. It is an excellent introduction to what is a nebulous and ungainly topic.--Sanford Lakoff
