Modernism and the Theatre of the Baroque

Kate Armond

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Modernism Drama and Performance

  • Fashions an independent aesthetic for modernist writers and texts that challenges many high modernist qualities promoted by James Joyce and T. S. Eliot
  • Provides new connections between philosophy/critical theory and modernist culture, links that are relevant to both popular and academic interest
  • Introduces key ideas, characters and techniques that allow the baroque to be used as both a conceptual and historical framework for analysing modernist achievements, thereby opening up new opportunities for research, and demonstrating how readily these ideas translate across genre
