    One thought on “The Cambridge Introduction to Modernism”

    1. A fairly decent introduction to literary English and some Irish Modernism, with many references to Italian and French literary and non literary artistic movements He focuses his discussion of Modernism around the modernist crisis of representation The book is really meant for undergraduates, though I wouldn t be surprised if undergraduates were overwhelmed by the number of references to artists, paintings, composers, poets, novelists, dramatists, and movements surveyed in this work.

    2. I was not able to read the entire book, but what I did read I really liked, as a good introduction to try to start to get my poor brain around what constitutes modernism.
