This essential guide explores and celebrates the rise and development of modernist and avant-garde literatures and theories in the period 1910-1945, from Imagism to the Apocalypse movement.

Yeats, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf, and samples the work of other important modernist figures, including Nathanael West, John Rodker, Aldous Huxley and the Harlem Renaissance poets.
