Machines for Living: Modernism and Domestic Life

By Victoria Rosner

An engaging volume on the relationship between modernism and the modernization of the early twentieth-century home. Brings together primary sources from many different fields of modernist cultural production including literature, architecture, design, science, and technology. Includes previously undiscussed architectural works by Virginia Woolf and offers a radical new reading of her work. Places women and women's ambitions in the early twentieth century at the center of modernism's emergence. Written to engage experts but accessible to the general reader.
