Abstract

Modernism, Internationalism and the Russian Revolution examines responses to the Russian Revolution and the formation of League of Nations in literature and journalism in the years following 1917. We see how visitors to Moscow responded to meeting Lenin, how the Bolsheviks intervened in the British public sphere, and how cultural figures such as Leonard Woolf, H.G. Wells and T.S. Eliot, debated the League and the Revolution. The book reveals the extent and complexity of the debate about revolution and nationalities which was a dominant feature of public discourse. Drawing on responses of journalists and literary authors, it allows insights into the relationship between modernist literature and the major geopolitical shifts which governed the period and demonstrates how a new age of transnational politics began.
