From the Publisher

"Lawrence Rainey, one of the leading modernist scholars in the world today, has produced an anthology ideally suited for the classroom. The attention to Continental developments as well as central Anglo-American texts distinguishes the volume from others now available to students. The range of writers, the judiciousness of the selection, and the expert introduction should make this the leading text in the field." Professor Michael Levenson, University of Virginia

"He has been marvelously selective. There are no secret traditionalists here, no writers included merely for their prominence in modernism's historical moment or for modern themes alone; all are hardcore, the real thing." James Joyce Quarterly
