Writing the City: Urban Visions & Literary Modernism

Synopsis

This work examines and challenges the traditional transatlantic axis, London-Paris-New York, that marks the intersection between western thinking about the City and the advent of literary modernism. Taking up the works of James Joyce and John Dos Passos, and drawing on a variety of interpretive strategies from literary criticism, social history, urban studies, sociology and cultural studies, Harding investigates the formation of a specifically Atlantic system of metropolitan identities and discourses.
