(p.1) Introduction
Modernist Soundscapes

Angela Frattarola

University Press of Florida

The introduction begins with a close reading of Rudyard Kipling’s “Wireless” in order to clarify the influence of auditory technology on turn-of-the-century literature. While explaining the geographical scope and limitations of the project, the Introduction situates the modernist shift toward sound perception as one of the many breaks with tradition that characterized the period. It also surveys recent scholarship that begins to consider how the soundscape, auditory technologies, and music of the early twentieth century influenced modernist literature.

Keywords:   Modernist shift, Sound perception, Rudyard Kipling, Modernist literature, Wireless
