Overview

Modernism, 1910-1945 explores and celebrates the rise and development of modernist and avant-garde literatures and theories of this particular period, from Imagism to the Apocalypse movement. Jane Goldman charts transitions in writing, reading, performing and publishing practices, and in international groupings and regroupings of writers and artists, and engages with, as well as unsettles, the retrospective and homogenizing term Modernism that labels the era. Goldman introduces students to the work of many canonical high modernist writers, such as Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot and Virginia Woolf, as well as to the work of other important modernist figures, such as Nathanael West, Kurt Schwitters and the Harlem Renaissance poets.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Jane Goldman's romp . . . through 35 years of avant-garde modernism's figures and texts, plunges us into the center of things. It feels like the Big New of that period, led by such spirits as the iconoclast Nathanael West, the collagist genius Kurt Schwitters, and everyone's heroine, Virginia Woolf. All our favorites are here, seen with an intelligent eye and summarized with an intelligent pen."--Mary Ann Caws, City University New York
