RESITUATING MODERNISM

ENG3RSM

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject offers an introduction to the British literary landscape of the interwar years - one of the most innovative and exciting periods of British writing. In this subject, we will re-situate Modernist writing as a multitude of literary responses to modern life - varied, contradictory and highly contested - and introduce central concepts used in Modernist and middlebrow studies. This will help us examine assumptions surrounding high-brow fiction, academic practices and the literary canon. Throughout this subject, we will discuss formal experiment and tradition in relation to political events and cultural influences. Last but not least, you will encounter some of the key literary figures, magazines and artistic groups of the period.
