A highly-acclaimed study of England's unique and peculiarly insular variant of modernism, and a Guardian First Book Award winner

About the Author

Alexandra Harris studied at Oxford and at the Courtauld Institute in London, and worked at Christie's for a year before returning to Oxford to write a doctorate on art and literature in the 1930s. She is now a lecturer in English at the University of Liverpool, running courses on Modernism and American writing, and leading the MA in Contemporary Literature. Her first full-length book, Romantic Moderns, was the winner of the 2010 Guardian First Book Award. Alexandra Harris was also a winner in the BBC's 'New Generation Thinkers' contest in 2011.

Reviews

'It would be impossible to over-emphasise what a clever book Romantic Moderns is ... not just an important book but a deeply pleasurable one, too' - Guardian
'The only disappointing thing about Romantic Moderns is that it comes to an end' - The Times
'The originality of Romantic Moderns is the extraordinary breadth of its focus ... a joy to read' - Sunday Times
'Highly eclectic and original ... a book that makes you think freshly about that perennially puzzling question of what it means to be British. It's elegant and wittily written, beautifully designed and splendidly illustrated: altogether, an admirable debut' - Martin Gayford, Sunday Telegraph
'Remarkable ... Harris's insights are based on a close, imaginative reading of collaborations and connections mapped through friendships and unlikely encounters. Her book is full of vivid snapshots, telling detail and beguiling loose ends' - Times Literary Supplement
'A brilliant piece of work that manages to be both comprehensive and coherent as it tells a compelling story about 20th-century English art ... a significant contribution to the history of English culture' - Adam Foulds
