MVP Publishes Dorothy Richardson’s The Tunnel & Pointed Roofs
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.
