Modernisms introduces the reader to a wealth of literary experiment, beginning in the nineteenth century world of Baudelaire and Mallarme and moving forward into the recognisably modern one of the first avant-gardes. Close readings of key texts monitor the explosive histories of Futurism, Expressionism, Cubism, Dada and Surrealist - histories which allow the familiar terrain of Anglo-American Modernism to be seen in a strikingly different light.

NiceOne
This remains the best introduction to the modernist literature. It's well written and gives a nuanced view of the different movements,
Broadcaster
Of the many available guides to and surveys of modernism, this is the best. Nicholls' vast learning, international perspective, clear prose, and constant lucidity make the difference. His use of the plural in the title is but the first example of his constant care to respect the multiplicitous and often contradictory nature of his subject. The interested reader or student as well as the more advanced scholar will all find many reasons to return to this excellent book.
