The period 1890 to 1950 is remarkable for radical innovation and literary development. This volume looks back to the origins of Modernism and the traditions that shaped it, examining texts from France, America, England and Ireland to provide a stimulating and original take on this unique movement in literary history. Combining textual analysis with key critical approaches, the book considers central texts such as Eliots The Waste Land, Joyces The Portrait of the Artist and Lawrences Women in Love alongside wider debates on Literature and War, Modernism, Music and the Visual Arts and Modernism and its Critics.
The York Notes Companion to Modernism traces the literary development of a period remarkable for its radical artistic innovation. Looking back to the origins of Modernism and the traditions that shaped it, the Companion examines Modernist masterpieces such as The Waste Land and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man alongside lesser known works of the period, offering detailed commentaries on texts as well as guiding students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of Modernism.
