Characteristics When Modernism was born, it was in reaction to the way of life that was becoming dominant in society at large, the dominance of the way of the city. This guide helps readers to engage with the major critical debates surrounding literary modernism.

Shows how succeeding generations have developed those constructions.

It encourages an interdisciplinary approach linking music, architecture, the visual arts, literature, and social and intellectual history. The journal's broad scope fosters dialogue about the history of modernism and its relations to modernization.
