Reprint. Originally published: 2004.

This exciting new volume provides a freshly inclusive account of literature in England in the period before, during, and after the First World War.

Chris Baldick places the modernist achievements of Virginia Woolf, T S Eliot, and James Joyce within the rich context of non-modernist writings across all major genres, allowing 'high' literary art to be read against the background of 'low' entertainment.

Looking well beyond the modernist vanguard, Baldick highlights the survival and renewal of realist traditions in these decades of post-Victorian disillusionment.

Ranging widely across psychological novels, war poems, detective stories, satires, and childern's books, "The Modern Movement" provides a unique survey of the literature of this turbulent time.
