About this book
For novelist and critic Josipovici, the contemporary novel in English is profoundly disappointing, a poor relation of its groundbreaking Modernist forebears. His agile and passionate book asks why.
Charts some of Modernism's key stages, from Durer, Rabelais, and Cervantes to the present, bringing together an array of artists, musicians, and writers - including Beckett, Borges, Friedrich, Cezanne, Stevens, Robbe-Grillet, Beethoven, and Wordsworth.
