The Cambridge Companion to Modernism / Edition 1by Michael Levenson, Michael Levenson
Pub. Date: 02/28/1999
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In this Companion, eminent British and American scholars offer a guide to the revolutionary cultural transformations of the first decades of the twentieth century. Chapters on the major literary genres, on intellectual, political and institutional contexts, and on film and the visual arts, provide close analyses and a broader set of interpretive narratives. A Chronology and Guide to Further Reading supply valuable orientation within the field. Students will find much-needed help with the difficulties of approaching Modernism, while the essays' original contributions will send scholars back to this volume for stimulating reevaluation.
