This chapter takes a look at the transnational status of the Hogarth Press. It analyses their six-year professional relationship with William Plomer, who it argues was a notable figure in the new histories of modernism due to his role in the international scope of the modernist movement. The discussion demonstrates how the promotion and launch of Plomer's career by the Woolfs links the Press in this same movement. It also shows how Plomer's The Case is Altered reflects the Woolfs' efforts during the 1930s to place themselves within the mainstream literary market.

Keywords:   transnational status, William Plomer, modernism, modernist movement, Case is Altered, mainstream, literary market
