In and Out of Sight

Modernist Writing and the Photographic Unseen

Alix Beeston

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • A new theory of composite literary form in the first half of the twentieth century, hinging on the figuration of the woman-in-series
  • A series of original and convincing readings of four major modernist authors that build on new archival findings in establishing photography as an aesthetic analogue and travelling discourse to their work
  • The first literary study to systematically apply to modernist writing the insights of new work in visual culture, known as the still/moving field (or moving image studies)
  • An innovative blend of critical methodologies, including narrative analysis, visual culture studies, gender studies, pain and disability studies, and performance and industrial histories
