Endorsement: “Publishing Modernist Fiction and Poetry is essential reading for anyone interested in re-thinking the vital part book publishers played in Anglo-American modernism. In place of the canonical story about small presses, even littler magazines, and collectable editions, centred on the 1920s, it ranges over the half century up to the 1970s, showing how rapidly the major writers of the long modernist moment entered the mainstream, thanks to the enterprising publishers who saw their long-term potential particularly in the new era of mass higher education.” Prof. Peter D. McDonald.
  • CHOICE magazine “Recommended” book: “Illuminating the economics and editorial development behind modernist texts, this important volume not only extends book studies research into the early 20th century but also identifies the reliance of authors like Joyce, Eliot, and Woolf on commercial publishing ventures.”
  • Modernism/modernity: "in its combination of scope and detail, this collection marks a watershed in work on modernist book publishing. It amounts to both a powerful, fresh account of the construction and persistence of modernist literature’s cultural value and a set of consistently well-researched, richly detailed, and readable case studies." 
  • The Year's Work in English Studies: "A marvellously well-balanced volume, it can serve as a primer to the field while also advancing many original arguments and sharing newly recovered facts and scenes of modernist publishing, making it engaging reading for students and scholars with any degree of familiarity with periodical studies or modern book history. . . . this will be a valuable reference volume for decades to come."
  • Review of English Studies: “this is an important collection packed full of empirical information that should allow the increasingly important role afforded to book publishers to continue developing.”
  • James Joyce Quarterly: “The excellent essays collected in Publishing Modernist Fiction and Poetry are essential reading for modernist and Joycean scholars alike.”
  • American Literary History: “Lise Jaillant’s edited collection Publishing Modernist Poetry and Fiction is a significant contribution to the study of transatlantic literary culture during the interwar years."
  • The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America: "the essays in this book are full of fascinating vignettes and important case studies that capture the pleasure of scholarly analysis and storytelling in archives and of revisiting foundational stories about modernist publishing and the publishing of modernism."
