Multilingualism in Modernist Fiction, Hardback Book

Multilingualism in Modernist Fiction Hardback


This new study argues that modernist literature is characterised by a 'multilingual turn'.

Examining the use of different languages in the fiction of a range of writers, including Lawrence, Richardson, Mansfield, Rhys, Joyce and Beckett, Taylor-Batty demonstrates the centrality of linguistic plurality to modernist forms of defamiliarisation.
