The early Twentieth Century produced some of the most exhilarating writing in English. Writers from Britain, America and Ireland were challenging literary conventions in order to seek to accommodate their changed perspective upon a dynamic but newly unsettling world.
The early twentieth century saw modernist writers challenge literary conventions to express their perspectives on a dynamic but unsettling world. This book provides a lucid overview of the period, mapping the literary alongside historical, social and literary issues, and offering informed readings of works by Woolf, Eliot, Lawrence, Pound and Joyce amongst others.
