Lise Jaillant

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Modernist Culture

  • The first account of European reprint series that sold modernism to a wide, international public at the beginning of the twentieth century
  • Draws on extensive work in neglected publishers' archives
  • Sheds new light on the relationship between publishers and major modernist writers (including Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, James Joyce and Wyndham Lewis)
  • Prompts a rethinking of modernist institutions, away from small presses and little magazines and towards large-scale publishing enterprises
