MVP Publishes Dorothy Richardson’s The Tunnel & Pointed Roofs

The MVP is pleased to announce that it has published reading copies of Dorothy Richardson’s The Tunnel (1919) and Pointed Roofs (1915). Stephen Ross writes,

Dorothy Richardson is an absolutely foundational figure of literary modernism in English. Contrary to the heroic model of the “men of 1914” postulated by one of those men himself, Wyndham Lewis, Richardson in fact pioneered some of the experiments in narrative that would become hallmarks of modernism across the board. Only Marcel Proust, whose A la recherche du temps perdu provides a fine parallel to Richardson’s achievement, attempted something similar so early in the century.

We’ve got an exciting year ahead of us…check back soon for even more modernist editions.
