Modernism and After

Munir (Author)
Synopsis This book makes an attempt to unravel the complexity of the concept of Modernism, exploring its numerous definitions, cultural factors, scope, nature, period, locale, and major characteristics. Divided into seven chapters, the book mainly pivots on the omnipresent effect of modernism in English poetry through a welter of overlapping artistic, visual and architectural movements imbued with the spirit of changed sensibility in the early decades of the twentieth century. The worth-mentioning avant-gradeisms included herein are - dadaism, cubism, futurism, surrealism and expressionism. He study also elucidates the concept of history, myth, and existentialism imbibed by the modernist literary texts lending an eaesthetic beauty. In the end the book dwells upon her most fashionable term, Postmodernism, in the academic world. With its definitions, extent, dimensions and cultural theories, the main postmodernist literary characteristics also occupy a due place. Shorn of all literary pretensions, the book primarily lays bare the recurring problems related to the understanding of Modernism and Postmodernism to the Indian Scholars.
