Cinema and Modernism by David Trotter
Book DescriptionThis study revolutionises our understanding of both literary modernism and early cinema. Trotter draws on the most recent scholarship in English and film studies to demonstrate how central cinema as a recording medium was to Joyce, Eliot and Woolf, and how modernist were the concerns of Chaplin and Griffith. This book rewrites the cultural history of the early twentieth century, showing how film technology and modernist aesthetics combined to explore the limits of the human. * Offers major re-interpretations of key Modernist works, including Ulysses, The Waste Land, and To the Lighthouse * Explores film and film-going in works by Henry James, Frank Norris, Rudyard Kipling, Katherine Mansfield, and Elizabeth Bowen * Offers original analyses of crucial phases in the careers of two of the most celebrated film-makers of the silent era, D.W. Griffith and Charlie Chaplin

Informal Economies in Post-Socialist Spaces, Hardback (June 2015)
Informed by in-depth case studies focusing on a wide spectrum of micro and macro post-socialist realities, this book demonstrates the multi-faceted nature of informality and suggests that it is a widely diffused phenomenon, used at all levels of a society and by both winners and losers of post-socialist transition.
Literature in the First Media Age, Hardback (December 2013)
Communications technology is an idea about the prosthetic enhancement of our capacity to communicate. Some of the writers who first woke up to this fact lived and wrote in Britain between the World Wars. In this title, the author creates a new literary canon of works distinguished by their alertness to the implications of new media and materials.
Uses of Phobia, Paperback (June 2010)
The essays brought together in this book understand phobia not as a pathology, but as a versatile moral, political, and aesthetic resource and one with a history.
Sons and Lovers, Paperback (February 2009)» View all books by David Trotter
Lawrence's first major novel was also the first in the English language to explore ordinary working-class life from the inside. No writer before or since has written so well about the intimacies enforced by a tightly-knit mining community, and his powerful description of Paul Morel's relationships make this novel as relevant now as when it was first published.
