9780521120814: The Modernist Novel and the Decline of Empire

John Marx argues that the early twentieth century was a key moment in the emergence of modern globalization, rather than simply a period of British imperial decline. Modernist fiction was actively engaged in this transformation of society on an international scale. The very stylistic abstraction that seemed to remove modernism from social reality, in fact internationalized the English language. Rather than mapping the decline of Empire, modernists such as Conrad and Woolf celebrated the shared culture of the English language as more important than the waning imperial structures of Britain.

About the Author:

John Marx is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Richmond, Virginia.

Review:

"John Marx's The Modernist Novel and the Decline of Empire makes an important contribution to the transnational turn to modernist studies; it is also well-positioned to become a significant sourcebook for studies of literary globalization in the decades following high modernism." -- Novel: A Forum on Fiction

"John Marx reinterprets imperial decline as a moment in which a new understanding of market forces pervaded artistic production.... Professionalism and imperialism go hand-in-hand, as in accounts of the rise of bureaucracy in the colonies, and John Marx's achievement is to add modernism to the mix." -- Journal of Modern Literature

In the early twentieth century, subjects of the British Empire ceased to rely on a model of centre and periphery in imagining their world and came instead to view it as an interconnected network of cosmopolitan people and places. English language and literature were promoted as essential components of a commercial, cultural, and linguistic network that spanned the globe.
