Addressing key literary texts and neglected authors of the period, Writing London explores the alterity within many of London's most familiar locations. Making sharp distinctions between modernity and modernism, the volume offers extensive readings of Richard Marsh, Amy Levy, Arnold Bennett and T.S. Eliot. Through detailed and attentive close readings which draw on both historiography and other interdisciplinary theoretical resources, Wolfreys reassesses the city as a series of singular sites irreducible to stable identities, whilst also offering a cogent re-evaluation of motifs of the nocturnal and the suburban in the literary imagination of London, concluding with an extended reading of The Waste Land and its manuscript drafts."@en ;
