Examining work from Ford and Conrad's pre-war impressionism through Rhys's fiction of the late 1930s, the author shows how modernist innovation engages with transformations in early twentieth-century capitalism and tracks the ways in which modernist fiction reconfigures capitalist mythologies along the fault lines of their internal contradictions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This smart, sophisticated, enlightening study uses the lenses of new economic criticism to examine a diverse array of texts and to reveal how modernist literature discovers systems of irrational impulses at the heart of economic behavior and theory. The book makes a welcome and original contribution to modernist criticism.' - Mark Osteen, Professor of English, Loyola University Maryland, USA
