Summary
"Modernism and the Architecture of Private Life traces the unexpected ways in which certain ideas, motifs, and techniques migrated among different art forms in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century England, finding related expression in literature, art, interior design, and architecture. British modernist writers, together with artists, architects, and designers were collectively engaged in a far-reaching and multilayered project to redefine the form and meaning of middle-class domesticity and to rewrite the relationship between gender and space. Unraveling the apparent paradox of modernist domesticity, Victoria Rosner tells the story of the creation of an experimental, unstructured, and embodied kind of private life, the kind of life we still call "modern.""--BOOK JACKET
