Fictions of Autonomy

Modernism from Wilde to de Man

Andrew Goldstone

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Rejects the entrenched opposition in literary studies between historicist interpretation and formalist close reading, and proposes a new method that takes sociologically-informed analysis all the way into the formal and rhetorical details of the individual text
  • Offers a theory of autonomy which is also a case for the distinctiveness of literary studies
  • Discusses fiction and poetry, theory and literature, American and British and Western European texts
