Summary
"The book reveals the rich 'metaphysics' of modernist literature through a Deleuzian and Guattarian lens, using their radical philosophical concepts to revisit key texts, including Woolf's To the Lighthouse and The Waves, Lawrence's The Rainbow, and Joyce's Ulysses. The philosophy allows Monaco to draw an immanent map of the modernist literature that reviews the charged and complex political and aesthetic territory of modernism and its confrontation with the machine age in terms of the dazzling array of pragmatic effects or 'machines' in the texts. This is a lively, cutting-edge intersection of philosophy and literature that suggests that the critical text must itself become a 'machine': a pragmatic, and not merely interpretive, agent."--BOOK JACKET
