Abstract
This final paper deals with three modernist novels: Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway and Edward Morgan Forster's A Room with a View. This examination of the selected novels focuses on the role of water imagery that prevails in modernist literary fiction, generally speaking. The role of water imagery is explained as modernist authors’ response to a new sense of space at the beginning of the twentieth century. It highly contributed literary presentation of fluidity, rapid changes and instability of modern way of life based on mobility and displacement. This paper especially addresses issues like Conrad’s transnational narrative, Woolf’s mutual relations between inner and outer spaces and Forster’s flux.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Ovaj završni rad bavi se trima modernističkim romanima: Heart of Darkness Josepha Conrada, Mrs Dalloway Virginije Woolf i A Room with a View Edwarda Morgana Forstera. Ovo istraživanje izabranih romana fokusirano je na ulogu slikovitosti vode koja prevladava modernističkom književnošću, općenito govoreći. Uloga slikovitosti vode objašnjena je kao odgovor modernističkih autora na novo poimanje prostora na početku dvadesetog stoljeća. Uvelike je pridonijela književnom prikazu fluidnosti, brzim promjenama i nestabilnosti modernog načina života baziranoj na mobilnosti i prostornom razmještaju. Ovaj rad naročito ističe teme poput Conradove transnacionalne naracije, uzajamnih odnosa između unutarnjih i vanjskih prostora Virginije Woolf, te Forsterovog protoka.
