Einstein's wake : relativity, metaphor, and modernist literature by Michael H Whitworth( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 392 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."--BOOK JACKET
Modernism : a short introduction by David Ayers( Book )
13 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 329 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

Locating Woolf : the politics of space and place by A Snaith( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 277 libraries worldwide
The locations of Virginia Woolf's fictions and essays are rarely neutral backdrops, but spaces whose meanings are produced and reproduced through social activity. Woolf's writings are constantly alive to those meanings and to their contestation, but the nuances are not always immediately apparent. Locating Woolf, a collection of eleven essays by an international range of scholars, is the first book to offer an in-depth treatment of her spatial politics, contributing to emergent debates about modernism and geography. Its innovative readings provide both fresh approaches to well-established texts -- A Room of One's Own, Orlando, Between the Acts -- and new contexts for less familiar essays such as "Thunder at Wembley" and "Evening Over Sussex". Themes considered include gendered spaces, the urban and the rural, the postcolonial, the technological, and the transcultural. The introduction includes a theoretical overview and original readings of Night and Day, Mrs Dalloway, and the London Scene essays

Political and social change during Woolf's lifetime led her to address the role of the state and the individual. Michael Whitworth shows how ideas and images from contemporary novelists, philosophers, theorists, and scientists fuelled her writing, and how critics, film-makers, and novelists have reinterpreted her work for later generations. - ;During Virginia Woolf's lifetime Britain's position in the world changed, and so did the outlook of its people. The Boer War and the First World War forced politicians and citizens alike to ask how far the power of the state extended into the lives of in
