In reading Cane, one thing I always noticed was how the structure of the novel often felt disjointed. This characteristic of the novel coincides with many themes of modernist literature and art, in general. I often thought of his style of writing as the literary counterpart to modernist visual art such as cubism, with all of its strange intersections and multiple points of view. However, the structure of the novel is actually a full circle. In what ways, if any, do you think this circular form can be linked to modernism?
