Discussion of space and geography has become common in contemporary literary and cultural studies, especially in the fields of postmodernism and postcolonialism. Moving Through Modernity offers the first full-length account of modernism from the perspective of a critical literary geography. In stimulating new readings of E.M. Forster, Imagism, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Jean Rhys, this book demonstrates how space and geography were also central concerns for modernists.
