about

Modernism and Christianity is about the formative and continuing impact of Christianity upon the cultural movement known as Modernism. It defends the view that any theoretical, historical, or critical discussion of Modernism that neglects or minimises that impact is inevitably flawed. The whole field of Modernism Studies should thus be re-thought in accordance with the insight that the role of Christianity is intrinsic to any coherent account of Modernism. The book establishes 'Modernism and Christianity' as a distinct field of study, and undertakes case studies of six authors in their historical context: James Joyce, David Jones, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden, and Samuel Beckett.
