Summary
Recognizing that (modern) literary history is currently one of the main sites of theoretical and methodological reflection in literary studies, this volume takes stock of recent scholarship and investigates how literary historical research has modified our understanding of writing between 1900 and 1950. Its approach is radically multiperspectivist. Each contribution is presented under the heading of a label - from 'style' and 'anthology' to 'objects' and 'abstraction' - which sums up the approach to writing literary history the essay in question advances or reconsiders. In addition, the present book covers a highly variegated corpus, with texts, writers and literary phenomena from the lowbrow to the highbrow kind and from both major and minor cultural zones in the modernist period. This inclusive approach, both in methods and in case studies, is not only fully in line with the vision of the MDRN research lab, it also invites the reader to draw unforeseen parallels. --
