E.M. Forster's Modernism is the first detailed and comprehensive investigation into Forster's relationship to Modernism. A fresh and original study, it situates Forster's fiction within a range of early 20th Century contexts: socio-political, generic and aesthetic. It advances the argument that Forster's fiction embodies an important strand within modernism and in doing so makes the case for a new definition and interpretation of 'modernism'.

Medalie (English, U. of Pretoria, South Africa) investigates Forster's relationship to Modernism, placing his fiction within a range of early 20th- century sociopolitical, generic, and aesthetic contexts. He argues that Forster's fiction embodies an important strand within Modernism and makes the case for a new definition and interpretation of Modernism. He also examines Forster's work in relation to larger issues in early 20th-century British fiction. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
