Gr 10 Up-This well-written introduction explains what modernism is and addresses such topics as "The New Poetry" and "Regional Movements." Each section contains 2-to-5 annotated scholarly essays, some excerpted, ranging in length from 4-to-14 pages that examine a specific aspect of the literature. All of them open with a few summarizing comments and/or background on the author(s). Within the essays, the works of specific writers are introduced in the hope that readers get a complete "picture of the complex interplay of social, economic, political, aesthetic, and philosophical forces and ideas" that contribute to the development of any era. While the book contains some literary jargon, students will find it a helpful companion to other sources. A chronology lists authors and their works. Students doing research will appreciate the four-page topical bibliography and detailed index. A valuable resource.-Linda Zoppa, South Bronx High School, NY
