[Msa-discuss] Modernism textbook needed

Hi Jonathan,

I'd second Dr Spiropoulou's suggestion: Modernism: An Anthology of Sources and Documents (EUP), ed. V. Kolocotroni, J. Goldman and O. Taxidou, is excellent and I hear a new, revised & enlarged edition is on the way. It's of course an anthology solely dedicated to primary sources, so I use it in conjunction with P. Lewis's Introduction to Modernism for my undergraduate students (3rd year), and with Levenson's (ed.) Cambridge Companion to Modernism for postgraduate students. For modules with a more international slant I use Wollaeger's (ed.) The Oxford Handbook of Global Modernism, which works particularly well with Kolocotroni et al.

Good luck with any decision you make, and please report back if you discover a new gem!

Mia Carter and Alan Friedman have an anthology from Routledge with some excellent, although of course brief, excerpts from various statements of/about modernism(s).  I am test-driving it this semester.

Thought that one was out of print. If not it's an excellent choice.

Brevity and typos are my phone's fault.

Ellmann and Feidelson, ed. "The Modern Tradition" is useful.

Can anyone recommend an anthology of primary sources (not just backgrounds or criticism) for a senior-level introduction to modernist literature, primarily in English? The last time I taught this course I used Lawrence Rainey's Modernism, but for the well known reasons (eccentric selections, unfocused introductions, fine print, no pictures, and typos and editorial errors on almost every page) I'd rather not live through that experience again.
