Rethinking Modernism

by Marianne Thormahlen

Rethinking Modernism Synopsis

Around 1970, scholars adopted the term 'modernism' as a designation for the radical changes that took place in Anglo-American literature in the early twentieth century. The concept lent prestige to works and authors associated with it, encouraging the developments of a vast body of criticism while blocking academic recognition of literature to which it did not readily apply. This book challenges the concept of modernism, testing its viability in searching analyses of individual texts, writers and processes.
