Little Magazines and Localist Modernism

Eric White

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Provides a new account of the literary avant-gardes that questioned the relationship between geographic place, textual space and national identity.
  • Complements modernist studies of American expatriates.
  • Combines literary-historical, textual, and cultural criticism to deliver a 'networked' reading of American modernism in the transatlantic context.
  • Proposes a version of 'localist modernism' that prioritises issues of geographic and textual 'location' in transnational literary studies
