Modernist Objects

In 1919, T.S. Eliot famously described the phenomenon of the “objective correlative” as a method of using objects, physical artifacts and sensory experiences, to convey emotion and a larger cultural significance. This course aimed to test Eliot’s premise of the objective correlative by considering Modernism’s relationship to the material world: examining the ways in which material culture contributes to our understanding of the literature and expression of this period. Below is a digital museum of objects that tell us more about the world, culture, and literature of the British modernist period.
