Modern Print Artefacts

Textual Materiality and Literary Value in British Print Culture, 1890-1930s

Patrick Collier

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Modernist Culture

  • Gives readers access to a sphere of literary production and reception that is virtually unexamined by existing scholarship
  • Provides a fresh view of literary production and the print marketplace by refusing to foreground literary modernism as a critical lens. Instead, it focuses on more widely read and accessible print artefacts, including the Illustrated London News in the 1890s; the London Mercury; John O'London's Weekly; and the poetry anthology as a book genre
  • The book constitutes a simultaneously historical and theoretical inquiry into the workings of literary value
