Modernism, Technology, and the Body: A Cultural Study

כריכה קדמית
Cambridge University Press, 28 בפבר׳ 1998 - 309 עמודים
This book is a study of the relations between the body and its technologies in modernism. Tim Armstrong traces the links between modernist literary texts and medical, psychological and social theory across a range of writers. Armstrong shows how modernists subjected the body to new modes of production, representation and commodification as they attempted to render it part of modernity. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, Armstrong challenges the received oppositions between technology and literature by demonstrating the complex interconnections between these domains.
