"The concepts of 'Modernism and 'Postmodernism' constitute the single most dominant issue of twentieth-century literature and culture and are the cause of much debate. This difficult and controversial subject makes the need for a clear and authoritative guide all the more essential." "In this volume, Peter Brooker presents some of the most influential viewpoints on 'Modernism' and its aftermath. He includes key essays and selections from a variety of important critics, ranging from Benjamin and Adorno to Raymond Williams, J.F. Lyotard, Baudrillard and Jameson. These are grouped in linked debates and set alongside challenging contemporary arguments from Third World, Black, and Feminist perspectives. A substantial Introduction and detailed Headnotes for each section and essay provide an indispensable, well-informed guide to interpreting and contextualising the full range of positions, while providing a valuable contribution to the debate in their own right." "Students of English Literature and Theory will find this collection to be an excellent guide to understanding a complex and varied topic. It will also appeal to students of sociology, cultural and media studies, American studies, philosophy and art history."--Jacket
