A Concise Companion to Modernism Reviews


'This is the most exciting and vibrant introduction to Anglo--American Modernism yet to appear. ... The Concise Companion to Modernism is bound to become the main textbook for all those who want to understand more deeply the culture of the first three decades of the last century.' Jean--Michel Rabate, University of Pennsylvania "[...] I would recommend this volume to any library with a readership who comes either out of interest, or as students of the period needing to understand the context in which ideas emerged, looking for a way into the text. [...]A select bibliography at the end of the book provides even more options for advanced research, completing a most useful guidebook to some interesting themes." Reference Review "[McDonald] supplies everything any reader would need to understand the whole social and critical history of modernist publishing." James Joyce Quarterly
