unlocking the novel
a guide to modernism and postmodernism


Welcome to unlocking the novel,

a website created by (post)modern readers for (post)modern readers.


Ever feel overwhelmed by the notoriously difficult novels of the twentieth century?

Well, feel overwhelmed no more!

Unlocking the novel: a guide to modernism and postmodernism was created by Shepherd College students in Dr. Linda Tate's course on The Modern Novel. Visit about us to view the course syllabus and to learn more about the folks who put this site together.

Then buckle your seatbelts and join us on a reading journey.
