About this product
- DescriptionThe third volume in the Reading and Studying Literature series, co-published with the Open University, introduces students to modernism and to the globalisation of English in the twentieth century. Each period is discussed in terms of an overarching theme, providing a clear focus for study and discussion and introducing readers to an important theoretical concept in literary studies. This text offers a unique approach to modernism and the globalisation of English in the 20th century. It introduces modernism through depictions of the city from James Joyce, Fritz Lang's Metropolis and various New York writers. Section two looks at migration and memory in Sam Selvon, Elizabeth Bishop, Brian Friel and W. G. Sebald. The theoretical concept for this part of the series is 'literatures'.
