About this book


Modernist Melancholia explores modernism's melancholic roots through the detailed discussion of writings by Freud, Conrad and Ford. Melancholia ties modernism to the 19th-century obsession with loss and continuity and, at the same time, constitutes a formative moment in the history of 20th-century literature, modern subjectivity and critical theory
