Literary modernism in the British Isles and the United States can be described as the flourishing of avant-garde literature at the start of the twentieth century but it can be difficult to understand how and why different poems, novels, and authors are considered in relation to this complex term. Modernist Literature both offers an historical overview and explains the contours of literary modernism by taking the reader through the major figures and texts, focusing particularly on the core years of 1900-1930 but also looking back to Modernisms precursors and beyond to its legacy. Concentrating on the British Isles but covering principal American authors and referencing a much wider range of texts, Modernist Literature is written in a clear, accessible style that makes it an indispensable introduction to the subject.
