"This volume's greatest strength--and there are several from which to choose--is the clarity with which Greenberg articulates his central contention about the role that satire plays within the modernist literary tradition. Arguing that satire and modernism are 'very nearly the same thing' in regard to their resistance to sentimentalism, the author constructs a compelling case that late modern satirists undermined the moral verities reinforced by hackneyed literary appeals to emotion. Instead, they sought to reengage their readers' primal feelings, even potentially subversive ones. . . Highly recommended."
This groundbreaking study recognises the importance of satire and the grotesque to modernist fiction. It brings together the burgeoning field of modernist studies with new theories of emotion to illuminate why comic and satiric strategies for handling problems of feeling and representation have proved so effective in modern times.
