Modernism: An Anthology is the most comprehensive anthology of Anglo-American modernism ever to be published.
The giants of modernist literature - James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf, T.
S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens, Marianne Moore, Samuel Beckett - are amply represented, along with another 20 Anglo-American writers.
In addition, the book features a generous selection of texts by avant-garde thinkers and writers from the Continent.
These enable the reader to trace modernism's interaction with the Futurists, the Dadaists, the Surrealists, and the Frankfurt School.
Supported by helpful annotations and an extensive bibliography, this Anthology allows readers to encounter anew the extraordinary revolution in language that utterly transformed the aesthetics of the modern world.
