Designed primarily for use as an aid to students studying courses on literature; the book beginning with an introduction to modernism; but, this book is far more than that. It is also an anthology of great works by some of the best modernist writers, and includes separate sub categories each with their accompanying literature.

So, following an introduction to realism you are provided with works by Thomas Hardy, D. H. Lawrence, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway among many, many others.

After this we have an introduction to expressionism with examples by T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, H.G. Wells, Samuel, Beckett and Harlan Ellison, etc.

and finally, an introduction to impressionism, followed by works by the likes of Joseph Conrad and Jorge Luis Borges, to name but few.

The book ends with a critical guide - summing up modernism in literature.

This was the kind of thing that was going to revolutionize literary study in the age of the computer. How many times, and in what contexts, did Conrad use the word "inscrutable" in Heart of Darkness? Or the word "moonshine"? If you were willing to shell out $36 for this book in 1979, the answers would be within your grasp. And, if you were to purchase the companion volumes for Lord Jim and/or Under Western Skies, you could compare and contrast, that favorite activity of English students the world over. A small forest in Vermont was destroyed in order to create this series for Garland Publishing. Destroyed in vain, as it turns out, since now "The Victorian Literary Studies Archive" enables all and sundry to search "A Hyper-Concordance to the Works of Joseph Conrad" online, along with the works of the Bronte Sisters, Walter Besant, and Rhoda Broughton, to name but three of the "B"s.… (mere)
