About this product
- DescriptionModernism and the Architecture of Private Life offers a bold new assessment of the role of the domestic sphere in modernist literature, architecture, and design. Elegantly synthesizing modernist literature with architectural plans, room designs, and decorative art, Victoria Rosner's work explores the collaborations among modern British writers, interior designers, and architects in redefining the form, function, and meaning of middle-class private life. Drawing on a host of previously unexamined archival sources and works by figures such as E. M. Forster, Roger Fry, Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, and Virginia Woolf, Rosner highlights the participation of modernist literature in the creation of an experimental, embodied, and unstructured private life, which we continue to characterize as modern.
- Author BiographyVictoria Rosner is an assistant professor of English at Texas A&M. She has received the Feminist Studies writing prize and a Mellon fellowship. She was a contributor to Doan and Prosser's Palatable Poison (CUP, 2001).
