The simultaneous emergence of modernism and the cinema may explain why writers found in the new medium possibilities of representing and recording experience. Recent studies of modernism have all linked literary experimentation with the new technology of visual representation. This chapter focuses on three American writers – Gertrude Stein, E. E. Cummings, and William Carlos Williams – who responded directly to the cinema as part of their broader experiments across visual and verbal media.

Keywords:   Gertrude Stein, E. E. Cummings, William Carlos Williams, modernism, cinema, visual representation
