Einstein's wake : relativity, metaphor, and modernist literature by Michael H Whitworth( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 371 libraries worldwide
"The revolution in literary form and aesthetic consciousness called modernism arose as the physical sciences were revising their most fundamental concepts: space, time, matter, and the concept of 'science' itself. The coincidence has often been remarked upon in general terms, but rarely considered in detail. Einstein's Wake argues that the interaction of modernism and the 'new physics' is best understood by reference to the metaphors which structured these developments. These metaphors, widely disseminated in the popular science writing of the period, provided a language with which modernist writers could articulate their responses to the experience of modernity. Beginning with influential aspects of nineteenth-century physics, Einstein's Wake qualifies the notion that Einstein alone was responsible for literary 'relativity'; it goes on to examine the fine detail of his legacy in literary appropriations of scientific metaphors, with particular attention to Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, Wyndham Lewis, and T.S. Eliot."--Jacket
Modernism by Michael H Whitworth( Book )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
"Modernism" presents a judicious selection of key works relating to literary modernism. Designed to help readers engage with the major critical debates, particularly how literary modernism relates to modernity, as well as to other literary and cultural movements, this guide presents a critical history from the earliest reviews to the most recent theoretical statements. The first of the book's two sections introduces key issues in modernism, looking at the way in which modernist writers themselves understood and constructed modernism. The second section explores how subsequent generations have built upon these constructions and brought new interpretations to the subject. Each reading has been carefully selected for its relevance to the questions surrounding modernism and for its intelligibility to readers still familiarizing themselves with the modernist canon

Reading modernist poetry by Michael H Whitworth( Book )
16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
This text provides close examinations of key poems by T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, W.B. Yeats, and many others. It considers the key techniques employed to orient and disorient the reader, such as diction, rhythm, and allusion while exploring the ideological implications of subject matter and the literary forms and structures of modernist poetry. This text provides readers with a much wider cultural context of the genre and encourages them to engage with the texts to make their own interpretations, moving away from the question of what the poem
