I just happened to be reading Hugh Kenner's Mechanic Muse--he claims that the sentence "John Eglinton looked in from the tangled glowworm of his lamp" from Ulysses "may be literature's first close look at an incandescent bulb." Who knows whether this is true or not, but interesting.

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

Many thanks,
