This "Key Concepts" volume places significant focus on the literature of the modernist era, from the turn of the century up until World War Two. It is a clear and accessible overview of the texts, contexts and criticism of Modernist literature. It is alphabetically arranged and fully cross-referenced for ease of use. 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.
