Sounding Modernism

Rhythm and Sonic Mediation in Modern Literature and Film

edited by Julian Murphet, Helen Groth, and Penelope Hone

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Addresses a growing demand for critical studies on the interface between literary history and the 'soundscape' of modernity.
  • Discusses the rich nexus of new sound recording technologies, new vocabularies of and for sonic phenomena, new standardisations of rhythm and speed, and the weird displacements of 'voice' peculiar to modernity.
  • Answers the need for an explicit engagement with the symbolic registrations of sonic modernity on textual forms in sound studies.
  • Systematically analyses modernist forms in terms of their capacities to mediate rhythms, sonic textures and vocal derangements.
