Book Cover
A Handbook of Modernism Studies

The fourth volume in a new and innovative series exploring literature through the variegated lenses of critical theory, this bold new collection of essays examines canonical modernist texts by making sense of the conceptual, philosophical, and theoretical issues that underpin them. Edited by a renowned commentator on modernist theory and literature, the book features contributions from leading academics who have engaged in detailed analysis both of individual texts, and their links with theory and theoreticians.

The handbook explores the deep affinity of leading theorists for specific modernist texts, unravelling the intellectual links between Adorno and Beckett, Derrida and Joyce, Foucault and Borges, and Deleuze and Kafka, among others. It also attests to the penchant of modernist authors for particular aspects of philosophical and theoretical discourse. This compelling examination of the philosophical confluence between modernism and literature will attract students and scholars not just of literature, but in many other disciplines.
