Modernism is the movement which attempts to redefine the relationship between art and life, seeking to establish a mode of thought to account for new and radical practices in both realms. This anthology is a guide to the Modernist movement in literature and it provides students, researchers and teachers of Modernism with a comprehensive documentary resource. Covering a wide range of intellectual concerns of the period 1850-1940 in Britain, Europe and America the anthology draws on contemporary essays, reviews, articles and manifestos of the political and aesthetic avant-garde. The material selected comprises a concrete expression of the culture of modernity, providing insights into the origins, contexts and various manifestations of the Modernist movement.
