Overview

"... an invaluable aid to the reconfiguration of literary modernism and of the history of the fiction of the first three decades of the twentieth century." —Novel

"... her readings of texts are quite smart and eminently readable." —Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature

"... a challenging and discerning study of the modernist period." —James Joyce Broadsheet (note: review of volume 1 only)

"... highly important and beautifully written, constructing a contextually rich cultural history of Anglo-American modernism. It wears its meticulous erudition lightly, synthesizing an enormous amount of research, much of it original archival work." —Signs

"Through her thoughtful exploration of the lives and work of these three female modernists, Scott shapes a new feminist literary history that successfully reconfigures modernism." —Woolf Studies Annual

In this revisionary study of modernism, Bonnie Kime Scott focuses on the literary and cultural contexts that shaped Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, and Djuna Barnes. Her reading is based upon fresh archival explorations, combining postmodern with feminist theory.
