9780140138320: Modernism: A Guide to European Literature 1890-1930 (Penguin Literary Criticism)

An exploration of the ideas, groupings and the social tensions that shaped the transformation of life caused by the changes of modernity in art, science, politics and philosophy

From the Back Cover:

'The Modern movement in the arts transformed consciousness and artistic form just as the energies of modernity--scientific, technological, philosophical, political--transformed for ever the nature, the speed, the sensation of human life, ' write the editors in their new Preface. This now classic survey explores the ideas, the groupings and the social tensions that shaped this transformation.
