A Companion to Modernist Literature and Culture is an essential resource for students and teachers of modernism. The volume brings together entries on elements of modernist culture, contemporary intellectual and aesthetic movements, and all the genres of modernist writing and art. At its heart are 25 essays on the signal texts of modernist literature, from James Joyce’s Ulysses to Zora Neal Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God. The more than sixty contributors include some the most distinguished modernist scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. Ambitious in scope and comprehensive in coverage, the Companion combines a broad grounding in the essential texts and contexts of the modernist movement with the unique insights of scholars whose careers have been devoted to the study of these literary monuments. For this reason, both readers new to the subject and those who are already familiar with it will find the Companion a valuable reference to which they will return time and again.
