It includes a chronology and suggestions for further reading to aid learning and understanding. It does not rely on commonplace or over-used examples.Introducing the dynamic study of a literary period stretching from 1900 to the Second World War, the book reflects the exciting mix of European avant-garde, writers of the Harlem Renaissance and regional voices within Britain. Three distinct sections explore the major concepts, themes and issues that characterise the literature.
