Modernism and Its Margins

Geist, Anthony, and Monleón, José B. (Eds). Modernism and Its Margins: Reinscribing Cultural Modernity from Spain and Latin America.  Routledge: 1999.

This volume represents a rereading of modernism and the modernist canon from a double distance: geographical and temporal. It is a revision not only from the periphery (Spain and Latin America), but from this new fin de siecle as well, a revisiting of modernity and its cultural artifacts from that same postmodernity. Modernism and Its Margins is an attempt at introducing different perspectives and examples in the theoretical debate, redefine dominant assumptions of what modernism-or margins-mean in our historical juncture.
