Modernism, Technology, and the Body by Tim Armstrong

Book Description

This book is a study of the relations between the body and its technologies in modernism. Tim Armstrong traces the links between modernist literary texts and medical, psychological and social theory across a range of writers, including Yeats, Henry James, Eliot, Stein, and Pound. Armstrong shows how modernist texts enact experimental procedures which have their origins in nineteenth-century psychophysics, biology, and bodily reform techniques, but within a context in which the body is reconceived and subjected to new modes of production, representation and commodification. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, Armstrong challenges the received oppositions between technology and literature, the instrumental and the aesthetic, by demonstrating the leaky boundaries and complex interconnections between these domains. This book offers a cultural history of modernism as it negotiated the enduring fact of the human body in a period of rapid technological change.

Modernism by Tim Armstrong Modernism, Hardback (April 2005)

* The first volume in a new Polity literary studies series, 'Themes in 20th Century Literature and Culture'. * Combines a clear argument for those with no prior knowledge or experience of Modernism with a subtle argument that will appeal to higher level undergraduates and scholars.

Haunted Hardy by Tim Armstrong Haunted Hardy, Hardback (November 2000)

In his poetry, Thomas Hardy describes himself as posthumous, as rekindling the cinders of passion. Using Derrida, Abraham and Torok and other theorists, and referring to Victorian debates on materialism, this book investigates ghostliness, historicity and memory in Hardy's poetry.
