Modernism is a complex phenomenon, categorising a range of innovative literary (and other artistic) works, produced principally in Europe, Britain and America in the early twentieth century. Modernist writers strove to find new ways of representing the momentous cultural and technological changes of this period. This unit focuses on representative Modernist texts, setting them in their larger historical and aesthetic contexts. It also investigates the history of Modernism as an academic subject and its various reappraisals.
