About this book

By theorising the idea of 'formative tensions' between cultural Modernism and Christianity, and by in-depth case studies of James Joyce, David Jones, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden, Samuel Beckett, the book argues that no coherent account of Modernism can ignore the continuing impact of Christianity.

Erik Tonning is Research Director of 'Modernism and Christianity: Literature, History, Archive', a research project jointly funded by the Bergen Research Foundation and the Department of Foreign Languages in the University of Bergen, Norway. He is the author of Samuel Beckett's Abstract Drama (2007).

Reviews

“As a general introduction and overview to the relationship between modernism and Christianity, Tonning’s book is a remarkable success, one that will be of great value for both graduate students and junior scholars as they engage in the burgeoning interest in this hybrid area of study.” (Jack Dudley, James Joyce Quarterly, Vol. 52 (1), 2014)
