Maud Ellmann has written on canonical authors such as Eliot, Joyce, and Woolf, been a central contributor to Irish studies, and expanded the canon through her work on Elizabeth Bowen and Sylvia Townsend Warner.  As a critic and as an editor she has changed the contours of the modernist field.  Her alertness to the importance of psychoanalysis in the twentieth century informs her engagement with the literary and cultural history of modernism, as does her focus on the human body and the built environment.
