Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the role of travel in the history of modernism. It explains that modernist ideas and aesthetics crossed cultures and suggests that modernism was a consequence of the overlapping of the great industrial expansion of the 1870s with the urbanisation and technological revolution of the 1890s and 1900s. The article describes the travel writings of some prominent modernists, including W. H. Auden, E. E. Cummings, and D. H. Lawrence.

Keywords: modernism, travel, cultures, industrial expansion, urbanisation, technological revolution, travel writings, W. H. Auden, E. E. Cummings, D. H. Lawrence
