The query 'What is modernism?' has provoked extreme severe dialogue. A path to Modernism explores this sector; it specializes in the unusual and hazardous trip taken via Hardy, Lawrence and Woolf in the direction of unknown areas of the brain and the universe. In a dialogue of those novelists, either separately and with regards to each other, an intensive reconsideration of modernism is built. Woolf envisaged her contemporaries 'flashing previous on one other railway line'. A path to Modernism exhibits the hypothetical teach of Hardy, Lawrence and Woolf now not following an current music yet tunnelling underneath surfaces, following routes that are 'spasmodic, fragmentary', occasionally setting out like a rocket into the cosmos. Their fragmented, modernist works deny us 'the convenience of ...a unmarried that means, both in artworks or within the world'. This ebook bargains new methods to modernism, whereas insisting on books being left 'open - no end come to'.
