Modernist parody, imitation, origination, and experimentation in early twentieth-century literature, Sarah Davison.

Summary
This volume argues that parody is central to modernism and shows that as a literary technique, parody was a means for modernists to learn their craft, sharpen their historical sense, and define themselves as post-Victorians
