The Introduction argues for the pertinence of the category of French modernism in the field of modernist studies. By first discussing the few existing fragmentary accounts of French modernism as a unified phenomenon, this introductory essay wonders why the story of French literary modernism has not yet been told, despite the centrality of Paris as a real, imaginary, and symbolic metropolis of modernity. The essay thus suggests that decentring modernism away from the Anglo-American paradigm and opening it into a consideration of the global, which has been the dominant tendency of the transnational turn in modernist studies, may need to start with an examination of what the Anglo-American modernism considers as its origin and point of reference: French modernism.
