The work of the early Modernist poets, novelists and critics has set the agenda for much subsequent critical debate. For these writers the questions concerning form and intention in literature presented themselves with particular acuteness, and their struggle to come to terms with them resulted in a series of statements which should be of interest to any student of 20th century literature. This volume assembles a number of critical documents produced by the high tide of Modernism in England, seen here as being from 1910 to the 1930s. It contains letters, articles and manifestoes by leading creative writers of the period, as well as seminal critical essays. Peter Faulkner's introduction seeks to place these readings in their critical and cultural context, and each is introduced by a commentary explaining the background. Peter Faulkner is also the author of "Modernism", "Angus Wilson - Mimic and Moralist" and "Against the Age - An Introduction to William Morris".
