Abstract

Modernist Cultures As Bluemel points out, intermodernist scholarship needs to pursue historical and archival work, ‘recreat[ing] the web of personal and professional relations’, before it can offer a ‘theory’ of intermodernism (14). Intermodernism, she rightly suggests, ‘is not just for scholars of twentieth-century British literature’ (6), and the volume closes with a helpful sixteen-page listing of ‘possible intermodernists’. Much comparative work is left to be done on the transnational cultures of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Intermodernism will doubtless help to draw further attention to this exceptionally fertile period of literary and cultural production.
