A full-length account of modernism from the perspective of literary geography, this title demonstrates, through new readings of E.M. Forster, imagism, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and Jean Rhys, how space and geography were also central concerns for modernists. The text reveals the ways in which modernism represented a variety of spaces and places, from the city to the suburbs, and from urban monuments to cartographies of empire and considers how emergent technologies of transport, such as the motorcar and the underground tube train, brought new experiences of modernity that were both thrilling and disorienting to the modernist writer. The title offers a clear account of contemporary theorists Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau and Michael Foucault, revealing new readings of modernist texts with a focus upon space and geography.
