Literature of the 20th century refers to world literature produced during the 20th century (1901 to 2000). In terms of the Euro-American tradition, the main periods are captured in the bipartite division, Modernist literature and Postmodern literature, flowering from roughly 1900 to 1940 and 1960 to 1990 respectively, divided, as a rule of thumb, by World War II. The somewhat malleable term of contemporary literature is usually applied with a post-1960 cutoff point.

The Board of the Modern Library, a division of Random House, published its selections in July 1998. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce (1916). Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov (1958). Brave New World, Aldous Huxley (1932). The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner (1929). Catch-22, Joseph Heller (1961). Darkness at Noon, Arthur Koestler (1941). Sons and Lovers, D. H. Lawrence (1913). The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck (1939). Under the Volcano, Malcolm Lowry (1947). The Way of All Flesh, Samuel Butler (1903). 1984, George Orwell (1949). I, Claudius, Robert Graves (1934).

The purpose of the list was to "to bring the Modern Library to public attention" and stimulate sales of its books.

In this study of the 20th century English language novel the author shows how modernist experiments in form have intensified the vision of social experience in the novels of Lawrence, Joyce, Faulkner, Barnes, Hemingway, Lowry and Ellison. He demonstrates through detailed textual criticism, how all of them have responded to the same crisis of values in the West which preoccupied Freud and Heidegger. Their fictions at once confirm and challenge the legacy of these thinkers through a unique genre, the epiphanous novel. Here, the dominant structures of feeling in 19th century fiction - passion and compassion - are eclipsed by the more forbidding structures of absence and desire. John Orr is the author of "Tragic Realism and Modern Society" and "Tragic Drama and Modern Society".
