In addition to all these works people are mentioning, you may also want to check out WC Sharpe's NEW YORK NOCTURNE: THE CITY AFTER DARK IN LITERATURE, PAINTING, AND PHOTOGRAPHY, 1850-1950 (Princeton, 2008), which won the MSA book prize a couple years ago, and which deals with urban electrification centrally.  Great book.

Subject: [Msa-discuss] Artificial Light in Modernist Literature

Could anyone suggest examples from modernist writers—essays, novels, plays, poems, or even letters—in which artificial light figures prominently?

Many thanks,
