Modernism on Fleet Street
Patrick Collier brings an impressive array of archival research to the first full-length study of Modernism's relationship to the newspaper press. His discussions of T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, and Rose Macaulay show how their work participated in contemporary debates about journalism. His book is a major contribution to our understanding of the role journalism played in establishing the careers of Modernist writers.
