9780230391529: Modernism and Market Fantasy: British Fictions of Capital, 1910-1939

Examining work from Ford and Conrad's pre-war impressionism through Rhys's fiction of the late 1930s, the author shows how modernist innovation engages with transformations in early twentieth-century capitalism and tracks the ways in which modernist fiction reconfigures capitalist mythologies along the fault lines of their internal contradictions.

About the Author:

CAREY JAMES MICKALITES is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Memphis, USA. He has published several articles on modernism, including work on Joyce, Ford, Conrad, Dos Passos, and Barrie.

Review:

'This smart, sophisticated, enlightening study uses the lenses of new economic criticism to examine a diverse array of texts and to reveal how modernist literature discovers systems of irrational impulses at the heart of economic behavior and theory. The book makes a welcome and original contribution to modernist criticism.' - Mark Osteen, Professor of English, Loyola University Maryland, USA

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 248 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 0.7in.InModernism and Market Fantasy, Carey Mickalites explores British modernist fictions critical designs on the changing economic culture in which it took shape. Examining work that ranges from pre-war impressionism through the late modernism of the 1930s, he shows how modernist innovation engages directly with the transitions that mark early twentieth-century capitalism. Mickalites places modernist texts in relationship to particular economic structures: an investment and finance economy that imagines endlessly inflated returns through speculative trading; the anxieties of selfhood produced by capitalist exchange and private property; advertising and fashion cultures dream worlds of perpetual self-renewal; and commercial spectacles capacity to generate new public affects. Demonstrating that prominent modernists viewed the market as an abstract space organized around irrational fantasies and anxieties, Mickalites argues that modernism reconfigures capitalist mythologies along the fault lines of their internal contradictions in an effort to blast an increasingly reified economic culture into a new historical consciousness of itself.
