About this book

Modernist Nowheres explores connections in the Anglo-American sphere between early literary modernist cultures, politics, and utopia. Foregrounding such writers as Conrad, Lawrence and Wyndham Lewis, it presents a new reading of early modernism in which utopianism plays a defining role prior to, during and immediately after the First World War.

Reviews

"Modernist Nowheres addresses an enduring and wide-ranging set of canonical modernist writers in Conrad, Lewis, Lawrence, Wells and Ford, and delves into the archives to mobilize less well-known material to support the argument. It is an engaging and provocative contribution to this burgeoning branch of modernist studies." - Andrew Frayn, Ford Madox Ford Society newsletter
