(p.184) Conclusion
Portable Modernisms

Emily Ridge

Edinburgh University Press

The conclusion briefly reviews the chief concerns of the book but also addresses the status of literary portability after World War II. Using Graham Greene’s Travels with my Aunt (1969) and Marcel Duchamp’s Bôite-en-valise series as key examples, it makes a case for the historical distinctiveness of modernist luggage in its representation of a modern culture of portability in an emergent form, caught between solid and liquid modernities.

Keywords:   Bôite-en-valise, Graham Greene, liquid modernity, luggage, Marcel Duchamp
