The collection Studies in Twentieth and Twenty-First-Century Literature publishes theses and essays devoted to one author, to a literary movement or to a literary question. Literary theory occupies an important place in the collection, but it should not be disassociated from the history of literature, of genres, of literary forms, ideas and sensitivities. To inscribe a work in its social, historical, intellectual and artistic context is to help us understand its production - its poetics. In the alliance of scientific erudition and the intuition of internal textual analysis, these studies seek not so much to interpret a given work as to situate its specific character in a global literary history.
