Summary
How do novels travel through time? How might they endure in a changing world in order to reach the unknowable readers of the future? Modernist writers were obsessed with questions like these, and eager for their books to reach out to people, times, and cultures beyond their own. In recent years, scholars of modernism have focused on pinning them down: putting these books in their context and these authors in their place. We do so because we fear that any ambition to reach the future will make literature disengaged, irresponsible, and apolitical. We worry that literature cannot escape its own moment without also evading the hard truths of history itself. This text argues instead that literature can travel through time: not by transcending history, but by adapting to historical change
