About the Edition

Most recent revisionist studies of modernist and contemporary women"s writing about exile deploy nomadism, migrancy, and travel as important vehicles for achieving a cross-culturally negotiated, feminist identity. Their contention is that the potential dangers inherent in nomadism and exilic displacement as well as the resulting in-betweenness are, nonetheless, important, if not crucial and justifiable means towards intellectual, spiritual, and artistic development. Viewed in this light, women writers" figurations of home and exile are interpreted as complementary or surrogate locations where fixed national and cultural identities are rendered fluid or completely eradicated. This thesis argues that modernist and contemporary women"s narratives about exilic displacement hesitate to erase the line between exile and home just as they do not always justify the consequences of radical dislocation as constructive. Through a close reading of narratives by modernist women writers, Djuna Barnes, Jean Rhys, and Jane Bowles, and a contemporary writer, the essayist, and critic, Eva Hoffman, this thesis traces the ways in which these women writers (dis)figure various exilic and nomadic visions. It argues that the refrains of exile inscribed in their narratives problematize the tempting alternative of seeking a sense of self-locatedness in and through multiple re- and dis-locations, physical or figurative. In their work, their characters" exilic displacement is mostly aligned with drastic socio-cultural paradigm shifts that not only impact their sense of self and body, but also contribute to their psychological, cultural, or linguistic nomadisms that are not always productive. Viewing specific historical and socio-cultural events (for example, literary expatriate movements, WWI, WWII, and migration waves) as necessary yet displaced faces/phases of their characters" psychological and bodily topographies, these women writers" narratives consequently question the potential of the autobiographical genre to function as a textual home in which the exile"s cultural, psychological, and bodily ruins may be housed.

  Desert Modernism was a midth century approach to modernism that capitalized on the sunny skies and warm climate of Southern California and the American Southwest. With expansive glass and streamlined styling, Desert Modernism was a . Desertification in areas where traditional pastoral nomadism was common is a phenomenon of this century. Nomads possessed institutions and management practices that avoided excess concentrations of people and animals, rotated grazing pressure seasonally between major pasture zones, protected dry season resources that were critical to their survival, and limited access to pastoral resources.

Nomadism declined in the 20th century for economic and political reasons, including the spread of systematic agriculture, the growth of industry, and the policies of governments that view nomadism as incompatible with modern life. This article was most recently revised and updated by Elizabeth Prine Pauls, Associate Editor.   Nomadic vs Sedentary Between Nomadic and Sedentary, a great difference can be observed in their lifestyles. From the beginning of time, the human being has evolved passing different stages such as the Stone Age, the Medieval era, each phase, certain differences have taken place in the manner of living of the human being.

This book considers the shifts in aesthetic representation over the period that coincide both with the rise of literary Modernism and imperialism's high point. If it is no coincidence that the rise of the novel accompanied the expansion of empire in the eighteenth-century, then the historical conditions of fiction as the empire waned. The book is seen as an important modernist text. It is a departure from the traditional novel, isn’t it? No novel sets out to be traditional. People often hold up Dickens or George Eliot as “the traditional novelists”, but the moment you think about what Dickens is doing, .
