Abstract and Keywords

The introduction to the volume points to the ways in which the chapters that follow address the relationship between late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century literature and culture. The intention of the volume has been to point up continuities between the two periods and thus to critique the existing models of radical rupture that have come to characterize modernist studies. The introduction also gives a detailed account of chapter contents within the sections of the volume: ‘Twilights’; ‘Making it New’; ‘Sites and Spaces of Knowledge’; ‘Minds and Bodies’; ‘Political and Social Selves’; ‘Authorship, Aesthetics and Print Cultures’; ‘Technologies’.

Keywords: Victorian, modern, modernism, fin de siècle, science, technology, performance, poetics, Empire, aesthetics
