Green Modernism : Nature and the English Novel 1900-1930 (Hardcover) (Jeffrey Mathes Mccarthy)
About this item
Green Modernism explores the cultural function of nature in the modernist novel between 1900 and 1930, and thereby intervenes in definitional arguments for modernist studies and for environmental criticism. This theoretically engaged, historically informed book brings new materialist insights to novels by Conrad, Ford, Lawrence and Butts. Green Modernism is among the first monographs to explore the relationship between environmental criticism and British modernism. What emerges is an engaged modernism, emphasizing the profound political and social convictions behind the textual representations of nature. This work also foregrounds today's vigorous conversations about the material world's relation to literary artifacts, and helps readers make sense of the debates around new materialist thought.
