This important collection of essays explores the growth and development of Nordic Modernisms in a European context. Modernism is a truly international movement that cuts across many boundaries - geographical, cultural, and linguistic. Modernism involves the literatures of several countries; indeed, as these thematically homogenous but methodologically diverse essays demonstrate, cross-fertilization is a prerequisite for its very existence. The essays gathered here discuss the diverse forms of Modernism that emerged in the Nordic countries at widely differing moments. Key representatives of Modernism such as T. S. Eliot and Franz Kafka, are linked to a number of writers who all contributed to the development of a Nordic Modernism.
