Modernism presents a judicious selection of key works relating to literary modernism. Designed to help readers engage with the major critical debates, particularly how literary modernism relates to modernity, as well as to other literary and cultural movements, this guide presents a critical history from the earliest reviews to the most recent theoretical statements. The first of the book's two sections introduces key issues in modernism, looking at the way in which modernist writers themselves understood and constructed modernism. The second section explores how subsequent generations have built upon these constructions and brought new interpretations to the subject. Each reading has been carefully selected for its relevance to the questions surrounding modernism and for its intelligibility to readers still familiarizing themselves with the modernist canon.
