Focusing on several key cities, this study measures the influence of the distinctive urban landscaper on various modernisms emerging between 1890 and 1950. In particular, it explores interactions among literary texts and institutions of cultural production in London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and New York. Along with absorbing analyses of key modernist texts, each chapter surveys different sites in which modernism emerged: publishing houses, bookstores, discussion circles, salons, and cafès, and they address new urban features, such as the underground transportation system, the growth of the suburbs, and architectural inventions like the skyscraper. A final chapter considers the construction of literary modernism within cities beyond the anglo-European world.
