Outside Modernism

Outside Modernism presents eleven original essays which re-evaluate the range of English novels written between 1900 and 1930, assigned by critics to a space outside modernism. Drawing on critical perspectives as various as postmodernism, feminism, Marxism, queer theory and cultural theory, these essays argue for a new and inclusive context for understanding the development of English fiction in this period. This collection is the result of a transatlantic intellectual partnership which offers a stimulating interrogation of the cultural work performed by literary modernism.
