Modernist Literature by Mary Ann Gillies
Book DescriptionThis engaging textbook provides a critical assessment of British modernist literature produced between 1900 and 1945. Each chapter focuses on a single decade, a distinct genre and a specific theme: the 1900s - the short story - gender and sexuality; the 1910s - poetry - war, technology and propaganda; the 1920s - the novel - new modes of literary expression; the 1930s - the documentary - political engagement. A final chapter covers the 1940s and beyond looking at new literary and artistic movements and 'other' modernisms. Covering canonical texts and lesser-known works, Modernist Literature introduces students to current debates in Modernism and a range of literature in its historical and aesthetic contexts. Features: *Examines four distinct genres - the short story, poetry, novel and documentary - decade-by-decade. *Combines close readings with cultural and political analyses of British modernism. *Includes a Chronology and Further Readings with each chapter.
