Reading matter: modernist short fiction and things

This thesis explores modernist short fiction, looking at objects in stories and asking what they can tell us about both modes of reading and authorial aesthetics. Chapters consider Katherine Mansfield and the story-as-snack; Virginia Woolf and armchair aesthetics; and Elizabeth Bowen, peripheral reading and fashion accessories.
