Books - Modernism And After: English Literature 19101939 | ISBN 9780521711562 Modernism And After: English Literature 19101939
Author: John Smart
ISBN: 9780521711562
Pages: 128
Published: 2008-06-26

Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. Modernism and After focuses on those writers working in English between 1910 and 1939 whose work signalled a dramatic change in the sense of what art could and should be. An overview of Modernism is provided, but the book recognises that the term should not become a strait-jacket into which we try to fit a writer's individual distinctiveness. Rather, siginificant poetry and prose works are explored in the light both of the events of the time and of other 'modernist' developments in areas such as music, architecture and the visual arts.

Books - Romanticism | ISBN 9780521753722 Romanticism
Author: David Stevens
ISBN: 9780521753722
Pages: 128
Published: 2004-01-15

Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. Romanticism offers guidance through the diversity of uses and meanings of the word 'romantic', not in terms of fixed definitions or essential qualifying characteristics, but rather in giving a helpful framework for questions and exploration. The focus throughout tends to be on the Western European cultural world of the latter half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th, as befits English literary study, but the context is far broader.

Books - Satire | ISBN 9780521787918 Satire
Author: Jane Ogborn,Peter Buckroyd
ISBN: 9780521787918
Pages: 130
Published: 2001-02-08

Critical introductions to a range of literary topics and genres. The purpose of satire is to expose human hypocrisy, vice and folly, and because these aspects of human behaviour are not particular to any one historical period, satires can be understood by readers at any moment in time. This book explores the social and political circumstances to deepen that understanding. Text extracts are included from Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, Lord Byron, E.E. Cummings and Evelyn Waugh.
