The Novel after Film

Modernism and the Decline of Autonomy

Jonathan Foltz

  • Argues for a new understanding of the importance of film for the novel in (and after) modernism
  • Contributes an original conceptual rubric for thinking about the aesthetics of media change
  • Offers fresh readings of key figures (Virginia Woolf) and major assessments of many sorely under-studied authors (H. D., Henry Green and Aldous Huxley)
  • Intervenes in ongoing debates about the aesthetics of the modern novel
