    Sinopsis de: "Moving Through Modernity"

    Discussion of space and geography has become common in contemporary literary and cultural studies, especially in the fields of postmodernism and postcolonialism. Moving through modernity offers the first full-length account of modernism from the perspective of a critical literary geography. In stimulating new readings of E.M. Forster, Imagism, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Jean Rhys, this book demonstrates how space and geography were also central concerns for modernists. This book reveals the fascinating 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. It also 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. Offering a clear account of contemporary theorists of geography and space such as Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau, and Michael Foucault, this book will be of significant interest to all those working upon modernism and modernity. It will also make a major contribution to research into the exciting new field of literary geography.
