Leading scholar Stephen Kern offers a probing analysis of the modernist novel, encompassing American, British and European works

Leading scholar Stephen Kern offers a probing analysis of the modernist novel, encompassing American, British and European works. A fundamental source for discussions of the genre and a useful introduction to the subject for students and scholars of modernism and twentieth-century literature. Kern uses a group of canonical modernist texts to refer to as each point about modernism is made. Ulysses is the major example and he clarifies and illuminates it and the literary movement of which it is the centerpiece.

Leading scholar Stephen Kern offers a probing analysis of the modernist novel, encompassing American, British and European works. Organized thematically, the book offers a comprehensive analysis of the stunningly original formal innovations in novels by Conrad, Joyce, Woolf, Proust, Gide, Faulkner, Dos Passos, Kafka, Musil and others. Kern contextualizes and explains how formal innovations captured the dynamic history of the period, reconstructed as ten master narratives. He also draws briefly on poetry and painting of the first half of the twentieth century.

One can therefore admire Kern's unabashed love of modernist technique, even if the range of examples from which he draws is somewhat narrow and predictable. Perhaps this formalism will not surprise readers of Kern's best-known historical work, and certainly the one that has received considerable attention in modernist literary studies, The Culture of Time and Space, 1880-1918 (Harvard UP, 1983)
