About the Authors
  • Modernism emerged alongside radical challenges to traditional belief systems, the reorganization of public and private spheres, new modes of visual display, and innovations in recreation and entertainment. This interdisciplinary collection focuses on the diverse inventions, products, pastimes, and creative forms that responded to and inspired American and European literature. This volume explores such wide-ranging subjects as religion, dance, and publishing, thus introducing readers to the diversity of modernist culture. The Companion serves as a valuable resource for both those undertaking the study of modernism for the first time and those seeking to expand their knowledge of modernism's cultural moment.

    • Essays cover topics that have obvious affinity to literary modernism
    • This volume contains 19 illustrations to help readers visualize important developments in modernist culture
    • Contributors come from a variety of disciplines, making the collection exceptionally interdisciplinary

    Reviews & endorsements

    'While each essay can stand alone as an excellent starting point for students new to the topic, the book is also highly engaging as a cover to cover read as it combines sharp, incisive essays with thoughtful organization.' Sarah E. Cornish, Woolf Studies Annual

    'For undergraduate and postgraduate students new to the cultural contexts of modernism … this volume will be a very valuable companion. With its concise, engaging chapters by subject specialists, it also supplies a handy resource for the scholar.' Alice Wood, The Modern Language Review
