This Dictionary is the first to gather, delineate and make accessible the literary, artistic, critical, cultural and political practices that we associate with Modernism. It provides a wide ranging resource both to the canon of 'High Modernism' and to current theoretical perspectives that have contributed to the renewed interest in Modernism and have lent it renewed range and critical rigour in the early twenty-first century. A team of current experts in the field provide clear and fully contextualised definitions of key terms, concepts, texts, movements, practitioners, as well as influential critical views and legacies. The entries cover Anglophone Modernism as well as giving full attention to significant figures, ideas and movements in European, North and South American culture and to influences from non-Western cultures. The Dictionary can be used either as a companion to the editors' successful Modernism: An Anthology of Sources and Documents or as a stand alone reference work and provides both new researchers and experienced scholars with a thorough and up-to-date guide to this vibrant field.
