This book delineates Arnold Bennett's unique role in the transformation of the British novel from the aesthetic, psychological, and sociopolitical assumptions of modernity to those of modernism. The self-liberation foreseen by advocates of modernity was hardly the obstruction to art that modernists claimed, nor, as Bennett's later novels show, was the gap between the Darwinian and Freudian worldviews so wide as the modernists presumed.
