You can count on me--great idea and much-needed.

James Gifford’s idea, actually — but Linked Modernism and the MVP may be able to initiate something along that line…  

Crowd, can we count on you?

I love the idea of a creative commons site where you can essentially build-a-book from an existing library of materials in the public domain. Surely much of the material is now out of copyright, making such an endeavour relatively easy.

I agree. Perhaps this thread could be shown to potential publishers. I teach a class called Modernist Women Writers, for which I would use an anthology of primary sources along with the novels I teach.

With reference to Jane's message. This conversation proves that there is great need for anthologies  indeed, and  it could be brought as evidence to publishers. The collection the three of you are preparing sounds absolutely fascinating and valuable for teaching and research.

As a footnote to Georgia's message I wanted to say that Anne Fernald, Anna Snaith and I are working on an anthology on Transnational Women Modernists but have encountered some resistance from publishers who have told us that they are cautious about taking on teaching anthologies because they cannot make the finances work. Many of the primary sources that we are interested in bringing back into print are not readily available online or in second-hand collections. We have also been told that scholarly editions that bring individual writers further up the research ladder are more likely to be published than anthologies that gather writings from 'forgotten' and 'noncanonical' figures. In short, I think that publishers' commissioning priorities will need to change if everyone's anthology desires are to be met.

Gender in Modernism,
both edited by Bonnie Kime Scott

all the best,

Just to echo the laments, there has to my knowledge been nothing to replace


Ellmann  and Feidelson, which is weird considering how long ago they


compiled that book and how little it anticipates any flavor of new


modernist studies.   Why don't some of you young-'uns try you hand at


revising and updating it?   You can likely leave out the


proto-existentialism stuff that then was all the rage, which would give


some room for including Mina Loy, DuBois, Stein, CLR James and more than a


few others.

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.

 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.
