Middleton, T (2003) Modernism: critical concepts in literary and cultural studies. Critical concepts in literary and cultural studies . Routledge, London. ISBN 0415242371

Item Type: Book

This collection provides access to the major debates relating to modernism as a set of aesthetic practices and as a product of (late) modernity. Other volumes in the series have been edited by such leading scholars as Mieke Bal, Jonathan Culler and Bonnie Kime Scott. The work was prepared with the support of a research assistant, funded by the publisher, and drew upon the editor's archive work at the Harry Ransome Centre and the British Library. The emphasis is on the main currents of critical debate relating to Anglo-American modernism and the contents have been presented in their entirety without editorial matter, allowing readers to access the debates about modernism from a given epoch. One of the main ways in which the collection seeks to offer an original perspective is in its attention to the relationship between modernism and popular culture. The work's first volume incorporates some hard to access period material. Themes covered include: definitions and redefinition of modernism in literary criticism from the 1900s to the present; the politics of modernism; Modernism in relation to previous modes and genres; Modernism in the U.S. and Europe; Other cultural manifestations of the modern, such as art, science, psychology, and philosophy.
