Editorial Reviews


Restless and powerful, Ethnic Modernism does more than reconnect modernism with ethnicity; it recasts modernism entirely. This is vintage Sollors: Out-of-the-box, profound, and brimming with brio. (Gish Jen)

Sollors does a great service to the study of literary modernism by placing disparate ethnic literary traditions with in the larger context of American modernism, arguing that as an aggregate, they constitute modernism. (Darryl Dickson-Carr, author of The Columbia Guide to Contemporary African American Fiction)

Evidently Werner Sollors has read everything that was written in the US in the first half of the 20th century. As he did so he paid special attention to issues of ethnicity, class, and race in and around modernist texts canonical and forgotten. The result is an important new literary history of the period, informed by vast erudition and tactful interpretation, ranging gracefully across the visual arts, music, and film, and presented in so lively and engrossing a form that it is hard to put down. (Michael Leja, author of Looking Askance: Skepticism and American Art from Eakins to Duchamp)

Full of surprising discoveries and exhilarating juxtapositions, Ethnic Modernism demonstrates beyond any doubt that American literature has long since been more multicultural and global than any prevailing definition of the terms would have us believe. (Eric Sundquist, author of Strangers in the Land)
