For a more encompassing and stimulating picture of Modernism – seen as a movement of the 20th century, a broad spectrum of work across many countries – we must explore not only its external diversity but also its internal plurality. Portuguese Modernism manifested itself both in visual art and in literature. But at the same time it is important to acknowledge the centrality of Modernism’s contribution to this time of profound cultural change. Indeed, the socio-cultural transformations marking the early twentieth century in Portugal still endure today. This volume provides a critical guide for students and teachers, contributed by an array of scholars with unparalleled knowledge of the period, its artists and its writers.

Steffen Dix is Research Fellow at the Institute of Social Science, University of Lisbon; Jerónimo Pizarro is Research Fellow at the Linguistics Centre, University of Lisbon.
