"A unique and important book. Our understanding of literary modernism, which we think we know so well, is transformed by these analyses of the anthropological insights that it holds for readers."--Andrew J. McKenna, Loyola UniversityEmploying Northrop Frye and Ren Girard as his theoretical foundation, Johnsen reinterprets the works of three canonical modernists--Ibsen, Joyce, and Woolf--to argue for their commitment to analyzing collective violence as a defining motive in literary modernism.
