This anthology called Modernism in Literature is Paul de Man's reader on twentieth-century literary theory and suggests how closely entwined he considered the theoretical avant garde and literary modernism. The project is conceived as background reading for courses in nineteenth- and twentieth-century general literature, fiction, poetry or literary criticism, as taught in Departments of English, Comparative Literature or under the auspices of General Education (Humanities) programs. The first part, entitled ‘Backgrounds,’ focuses on a few major figures, grouped in a succession that projects meaningfully the curve of the historical evolution leading from the romantic to the contemporary period. The second part, entitled ‘Essays,’ deals with figures that belong, with few exceptions, to the twentieth century. A table of contents is included.

Keywords:   anthology, Modernism in Literature, Paul de Man, literary theory, avant garde, literary modernism, fiction, poetry, literary criticism, comparative literature
