Portable Modernisms

The Art of Travelling Light

Emily Ridge

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Modernist Culture

  • Presents the first full-length formulation of portable models for fiction and, as such, opens up a new field of enquiry.
  • Sheds fresh light on our understanding of the history of the novel through one long-obscured metaphor for narrative form.
  • Constructively integrates recent discussions of material culture and mobility in modernism within a single monograph and links these discussions to more formal questions.
  • Includes archival research on the material culture of movement and travel during the period.
