A History of the Modernist Novel reassesses the modernist canon and produces a wealth of new comparative analyses that radically revise the novel’s history. Drawing on American, English, Irish, Russian, French, and German traditions, leading scholars challenge existing attitudes about realism and modernism and draw new attention to everyday life and everyday objects. In addition to its exploration of new forms such as the modernist genre novel and experimental historical novel, this book considers the novel in postcolonial, transnational, and cosmopolitan contexts. A History of the Modernist Novel also considers the novel’s global reach while suggesting that the epoch of modernism is not yet finished.
