Description - Modernism and Theory by Stephen Ross
"Modernism and Theory" is a timely study which boldly asks what -- if any -- role Theory has to play in the new modernist studies and investigates the relationship between the two. Separated into three sections, each with a clear introduction, "Modernism and Theory" looks first at the links between specific modernist producers such as D.H. Lawrence, Bataille and Woolf in relation to theorists such as Deleuze and Guattari, Derrida, Benjamin and Agamben. The second section addresses more general questions involving conflicting attitudes to Modernism, Modernism as a narrative category and the centrality of theory to Modernism. In the final section six prominent scholars offer their thoughts on how Modernism relates to theory looking at topics such as ethics, ecocriticism and the avant-garde, concluding with an afterword from Fredric Jameson. The contributors use a dialogic format, engaging in debate and opening up the discussion, emphasising the fact that theory enriches and enlivens modernist debates. Contributors include: Stephen Ross, Anneleen Masschelin, Ian Buchanan, Roger Rothman, Allan Stoekl, Thomas S.Davis, Ben Highmore, Hilary Thompson, Pamela Louise Caughie, Neil Levi, Glenn Allan Willmott, Charles Daniel Blanton, Morag Shiach, Oleg Gelikman, Martin Evan Jay, Andrew John Miller, Scott McCracken, Charles F.
