EccentriCities: Writing in the margins of Modernism

St. Petersburg to Rio de Janeiro

Sharon Lubkemann Allen

Published by Manchester University Press

Durham Modern Languages Series MUP

  • Accessible, engaging storytelling with interdisciplinary approach to the modernist text
  • Broad cultural range, connecting Luso-Brazilian and Slavic literatures through a study of direct and mutual influences and by charting structural and cultural correspondences; reframing the correlation between European modernist citytexts and concentric, eccentric, and ex-centric contexts
  • Extensive historical scope
  • Innovative, incisive readings of important Russian and Brazilian writers, including Gogol, Dostoevsky, Bely, Almeida, Machado de Assis, Lima
  • Interpolation of visual and literary texts (reading maps, lithographs, paintings, photographs alongside literary texts, not only in order to look at what is represented within the frame but to elucidate common frameworks)
