The York Notes Companion to Modernist Literature traces the literary developments of a period remarkable for its radical artistic innovation. Looking back to the origins of Modernism and the traditions that shaped it, the Companion examines Modernist masterpieces such as The Waste Land and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man alongside lesser known works of the period, offering detailed commentaries on texts as well as guiding students though key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of Modernism.
