Author: Peter Nicholls
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Anyone who teaches modernism has cause to be grateful to Peter Nicholls for this challenging and conceptually sophisticated book, which first appeared 13 years ago. What was particularly exciting, and still is, was the focus on the relation between politics and literary style. Since the original publication we have come to accept that there are many modernisms, not just one, and this is reflected in a dazzling new chapter on African-American modernism. With its sense of history, feeling for literature and instinct for synthesis, Modernisms remains the best and friendliest guide to this most demanding field of literary study.
Who is it for? All serious students of modernism.
Presentation Thirteen chapters telling you almost everything you need to know. Would you recommend it? Absolutely. You can’t teach modernism without it.
