A Companion to Modernist Literature and Culture

A Companion to Modernist Literature and Culture is an essential resource for students and teachers of modernism. The volume brings together entries on elements of modernist culture, contemporary intellectual and aesthetic movements, and all the genres of modernist writing and art. At its heart are 25 esays on the signal texts of modernist literature, from James Joyce's Ulysses to Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eys Were Watching God. The more than 60 contributors include some of the most distinguished modernist scholars from both sides of the Atlantic.

Broad in scope and comprehensive in coverage, the Companion combines a thorough grounding in the essential texts and contexts of the modernist movement with the unique insights of scholars whose careers have been devoted to the study of these literary monuments. For this reason, both readers new to the subject and those who are already familiar with it will find the Companion a valuable reference to which they will return time and again.
