An unparalleled resource containing over fifty essays, The Oxford Handbook of Modernisms updates and extends the scope and depth of previous synoptic guides, bringing together new approaches to the more obvious themes of modernist studies as well as new research on the variety of cultural, aesthetic and geographical factors that were intrinsic to the creation of modernism. Two particularly innovative features of the Handbook are its focus upon
the cross media and international character of modernism. The Handbook is divided into six sections in order to reflect changed critical perspectives upon modernism's formal innovation and experiment, to foreground the
relation of literature and the other arts, and to understand these in appropriate intellectual, social, and geocultural settings.
