Cinema and modernism by David Trotter( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
Of all the new media developed during the 'second industrial revolution' of c.1870-c.1930, cinema was the one which had the most profound consequences for literature. This study is the first to propose the entire history of cinema to 1930 - from its emergence in the 1890s as documentary medium or vaudeville act, through its reinvention as a narrative art between 1907 and 1918, to its establishment in the 1920s as a global vernacular - as a context for the re-evaluation of key works by Joyce, Eliot, Lawrence, Woolf, Bowen, Lewis, and others. The cultural impact of new technologies and media has most often been described in terms of threat or crisis. This study demonstrates that it was above all curiosity about the camera's capacity to see what the human eye could not (or did not wish to) see which drew Modernist writers to the movies. Film became for them a medium whose subject-matter was the limits of the human
