This volume undertakes a fundamental reassessment of utopianism during the modernist period. It charts the rich spectrum of literary utopian projects between 1885 and 1945, and reconstructs their cultural work by locating them in the material ''spaces'' in which they originated. The book brings together work by leading academics and younger scholars.
