Seminal Modernisms

  • This book combines cultural studies, literature, and visual arts in a single volume whereas these topics are usually tackled in separate books
  • This book defends the idea of an Anglo-American modernist continuum, whereas European English studies often separate between US, UK and European modernisms
  • This book is careful to include works hitherto considered as minor alongside canonical ones
  • This book is largely devoted to women's writing and fine art, which have so often been neglected in the study of modernism
  • This book extends outside the realm of the English language, in order to suggest the transnational nature of so many modernist trends
