Out of Context

The Uses of Modernist Fiction

Michaela Bronstein

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Offers a new paradigm for transhistorical approaches to literature
  • Analyzes counterintuitive but historically grounded connections between familiar modernist authors and later writers
  • Argues that the politics of literary texts reside as much in their transhistorical afterlives as in their context of production
  • Offers substantial new readings of major formal questions in modernist fiction including characterization and non-chronological narration
  • Places the field of modernist studies in historically-grounded dialogue with later twentieth-century writers
