Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Feb 21, 2013 - Art - 260 pages
The European Avant-Garde: Text and Image is an interdisciplinary collection of thirteen essays relating to the study of European Avant-Garde movements between 1900 and 1940. The essays cover both literary and artistic subjects, across geographical, linguistic and disciplinary boundaries. Various aspects of the English, Irish, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Polish avant-gardes are explored, examining both diverse literary genres such as prose, poetry and drama, and specific avant-garde movements such as Futurism and Surrealism. The volume includes a lengthy introductory essay by Prof. John J. White, Emeritus Professor of German and Comparative Literature at King’s College London. Avant-garde studies can be enhanced and developed through dialogue with other disciplines, such as translation, gender, exile and comparative studies. Thus, the volume is divided into four sections: Representations of the Body; Translating the Avant-Garde, Identity and Exile; and Comparative Perspectives and the Legacy of the Avant-Garde.
