The paper explores the concept of modernity with reference to an artifact of 1908, H. G. Wells' novel "Ann Veronica" written in that year and examines how it represents the condition of England in the first decade of the 20th century. In the paper, it is argued that this cultural artifact constructs modernity as signifying a radical break as opposed to a gradual continuity with the past. Beginning with a definition of "modernity," this paper, through a critical analysis of Ann Veronica, demonstrates how this novel represents the "woman question" and the rights of women as signifying the sharp rupture of the "modernity" of the 20th century from the 19th century.
