about

A critical tradition in literary and historical studies views the impact of modernity on human labor resulting in the intensification of alienation. Morag Shiach, however, explores a series of efforts to articulate the relationship between labor and selfhood within modernism. Through studies of Sylvia Pankhurst and D.H. Lawrence, Shiach demonstrates how labor supports the political and textual innovations of the period.
