Twentieth-Century Literature: Texts and Debates

About the Series

The volumes of Twentieth-Century Literature: Texts and Debates enable students to engage with representative texts, associated literary and critical debates and the broader historical contexts of twentieth-century literature. They encourage and demonstrate both close analysis of texts and exploration of the contexts in which they were written, touching upon the impact of political and philosophical ideas as well as that of the century's rapidly developing mass media.
All volumes range across canonical and less familiar texts, across the 'high' literary and the popular, across genres and across continents, with work from the UK, the US, European, South American and African countries considered. Used together, and in conjunction with the Twentieth-Century Literature Reader, these volumes represent a wide-ranging introduction to core issues and texts in the study of twentieth-century literature, but they can also be used separately, as detailed below.
