British Modernism and the Four Nations

Critical accounts of the complex landscape of British literary modernism have tended to model it as "high" or "low," "late" or "early," prewar or interwar. In this new study, I aim to re-configure British modernism by looking at the key ways in which nationality – Scottishness, Welshness, Irishness and Englishness – and national space provided the engine that drove literary and cultural developments. These developments, I argue, began the process that issued, politically speaking, in the "Break-up of Britain."
