  • Its Beauty, Danger, and Feverish Thrill: Speed and Cycling Women in Fin de
           Siècle Fiction
    • Abstract: Speed has been hailed as a quintessential trait of industrial modernity, but always in a way that prioritizes the masculine and the aggressive. In Speed and Politics, Paul Virilio claims that the speed of the military-industrial complex, with its associations of the blinding prowess of the machine and the violent intensities of the battlefield, is the driving force of modernity. In his 1909 Manifesto of Futurism, F. T. Marinetti identifies speed as a new beauty of modernity that is diametrically opposed to stasis and passivity, qualities traditionally linked with women.1 However, the founding myth of Futurism, which involves a near collision between Marinetti's motorcar and a reckless bicyclist whose sudden ...

  • The Planes Made One Think: Virginia Woolf's Between the Acts and Invasion
           Literature
    • Abstract: While writing Between the Acts, Virginia Woolf anguished over the prospect of a German invasion. As Alex Zwerdling observes, "[i]mages of calamity dominate [Woolf's] diary entries for the period: 'The whole of Europe may be in flames—it's on the cards' (17 May 1938); . . . 'Now we are in the war. England is being attacked. I got this feeling for the first time completely yesterday. The feeling of pressure, danger, horror. . . . Of course this may be the beginning of invasion' (31 August 1940)" (220). Such anxieties were neither irrational nor eccentric because, Marina MacKay explains, "[i]nvasion remained a perpetual possibility in the last year of Woolf's life, and was believed imminent when the government did its ...

  • Chastity on the Western Front: Sexual Politics in Wharton's A Son at the
           Front and Rinehart's Dangerous Days
    • Abstract: In H. R. Hopps's famous World War I recruitment poster, a giant gorilla rises from the Atlantic to march onto America's shores, carrying in his arms an unconscious female victim. Her dress is pulled down to reveal her bare breasts and her white skin contrasts sharply with the ape's dark fur. The words "Destroy This Mad Brute: Enlist" span the top and bottom of the poster, making clear—along with the word "Kultur" printed on the bloody wooden club he carries—that the gorilla represents the German Hun. According to Nicoletta F. Gullace, this image is a "highly sexualized rendition of German militarism" (69), "[e]voking both the rape of conquered women and the rape of Liberty" (68). As Gullace suggests, the sexuality ... Read More

  • Mexico, Revolution, and Indigenous Politics in D. H. Lawrence's The Plumed
           Serpent
    • Abstract: "I . . . think it is my most important novel," wrote D. H. Lawrence in a letter to Alfred and Blanche Knopf in October 1925, referring to the soon-to-be-published novel The Plumed Serpent (320). Yet, as N. H. Reeve observes, once it was in print "he made scarcely any further references to it" (xxxvii). According to Reeve, critical consensus sees Lawrence as rejecting the novel's focus on "leadership, cross-racial bonding and religio-nationalist revival" for new concerns in the late 1920s. In this account, The Plumed Serpent represents the high-water mark of Lawrence's interest in these themes, with late works such as Lady Chatterley's Lover embracing a focus on social and sexual freedom. Much assessment of the book ... Read More

  • Ali Smith, Enthusiasm, and the Literary Market
    • Abstract: When Ali Smith won the 2015 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction for her novel How to Be Both, the Telegraph's Gaby Wood "breathed a sigh of relief" that this "exceptional novel" had "finally" won a major award. In the Guardian Shami Chakrabarti, the chair of the judging panel, gushed: "I think she is a literary genius. . . . I haven't felt that way about reading since I was doing my English A-levels. It reminded me of what it felt like reading Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, all of the greats . . . that this is not a good book, this is a great book, and people are going to be reading it long after I'm dead" (qtd. in Flood). In these popular media responses to Smith's work, the authors make use of tropes and clichés that ... Read More

    • Abstract: With the election of Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1997, England's Department of National Heritage was renamed the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. This shift was related to the rebranding of the Labour Party as "New Labour [for] New Britain," which reflected an ostensible focus on the future of the nation rather than its past (Blair). Yet despite being altered in order to announce and even cultivate a more up-to-date Britain, the Heritage Industry by no means vanished after academic indictments of it in the 1980s (such as Robert Hewison's The Heritage Industry: Britain in a Climate of Decline, which coined this phrase). Indeed, a new National Heritage Act in 2002 extended the provisions associated with ... Read More

  • Suicide and the Afterlife of the Cold War: Accident, Intentionality, and
           Periodicity in Paul Auster's Leviathan and Jeffrey Eugenides's The Virgin
           Suicides
    • Abstract: But now, we're about to enter the nineties, and some things have changed. . . . [F]or those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style. Our spirit is back, but we haven't reinstitutionalized it. We've got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom—freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It's fragile; it needs production [protection].Bidding farewell on 11 January 1989, Ronald Reagan warned the United States not to let its pride in the nation wane. He claimed that before the turmoil of the 1960s this pride was cultivated through family, community, and educational institutions, and that "if all else failed ... Read More

  • Fashion and Fiction: Self-Transformation in Twentieth-Century American
           Literature by Lauren S. Cardon (review)
    • Abstract: In Fashion and Fiction, Lauren S. Cardon asks readers to check their assumptions about the shallow consumerism and superficiality of fashion and instead consider how fashion choices—as they proliferate in the pages of the early-twentieth-century US literary canon, at least—tie directly to issues of socioeconomic mobility and identity. Toward this end, Fashion and Fiction traces the increased accessibility of fashionable clothing made possible through mass production and the corresponding growth of what Cardon calls "American democratic fashion" (10). No longer restricted by the rules or prices of the Parisian haute couture donned by upper-class elites, American fashion's increasing availability and affordability ... Read More

  • The Extinct Scene: Late Modernism and Everyday Life by Thomas S. Davis
           (review)
    • Abstract: Thomas S. Davis takes the title of his study of late British modernism from Elizabeth Bowen's 1941 story "In the Square," in which a blitzed London square is described as "the extinct scene" (1). The word "extinction" might summon temporal vistas decidedly beyond what Davis calls "everyday life," but for Davis the phrase yokes together his book's twin focus on the quotidian and the global: Bowen's "extinction" is taken to register the impact of global crises on local, everyday experience. In Davis's words, "late modernist texts look to the everyday to explain a historical transformation in the structure of the world system" (2). Davis tracks this supposedly typical feature of late modernism across a rich series of ... Read More

  • Green Modernism: Nature and the English Novel, 1900 to 1930 by Jeffrey
           Mathes McCarthy (review)
    • Abstract: Jeffrey Mathes McCarthy's Green Modernism: Nature and the English Novel, 1900 to 1930 is a work of ecocriticism, although McCarthy does not often use the term. The book is ecocritical in two senses. First, it articulates the importance of nature in selected modernist novels as well as the implications of this importance to literary scholarship. Second, Green Modernism is concerned with the importance and timeliness of ecological thought, which Timothy Morton also considers in his work The Ecological Thought. Beginning with discussions of the current states of modernist studies and the environmental humanities and then moving into readings of texts by Joseph Conrad, D. H. Lawrence, Ford Madox Ford, and the ... Read More

  • Bridges to Memory: Postmemory in Contemporary Ethnic American Women's
           Fiction by Maria Rice Bellamy (review)
    • Abstract: Throughout Maria Rice Bellamy's Bridges to Memory, the figure of trauma's ghost resonates. Its presence echoes; its residue clarifies as often as it clouds. It even manifests literally in the fictional narratives at the center of the book's focus. But this is not a book that lets trauma's ghost remain in the shadows. Through the theory of postmemory, what Bellamy offers is a concerted realignment of the way contemporary ethnic women writers engage generationally with traumatic pasts that is both conceptually distinctive and socially forceful. With deft treatment, the ghostly presence of trauma is engaged to recover the violent experiences of ethnic American women often "repressed from mainstream social ... Read More

  • Junot Díaz and the Decolonial Imagination ed. by Monica Hanna, Jennifer
           Harford Vargas, and José David Saldívar (review)
    • Abstract: Junot Díaz and the Decolonial Imagination is the product of a symposium that took place at Stanford University in May 2012. The gathering brought together a number of scholars from a range of disciplines, including Junot Díaz himself, to engage in an intellectual exchange that focused on the author's literary, cultural, and activist work. The anthology that resulted offers, in the editors' words, "the first collective reading of Junot Díaz" and represents a significant contribution to the fields of US Latino/a and American literatures and cultures (1). The works of Díaz are examined through a wide range of lenses, including "narrative, queer, racial, gender, disability, and decolonial theory," and the anthology ... Read More

  • The American Biographical Novel by Michael Lackey (review)
    • Abstract: Michael Lackey's The American Biographical Novel is well worth reading for its careful scholarship and its insights into both a literary genre and a select group of novels that are often overlooked. The book has a couple of significant flaws, which I will detail as a warning to readers; however, by no means would I wish to suggest that these imperfections should discourage anyone from reading Lackey's book.This book offers some real insights, several of which surprised me. For one, I appreciated the aforementioned fact that many of these novels are not well known; if the purpose of criticism is to encourage one to read more widely, Lackey has accomplished that. His thesis is that biographical novels offer insights ... Read More

  • Imagining Care: Responsibility, Dependency, and Canadian Literature by
           Amelia DeFalco (review)
    • Abstract: In the early 1970s Canadian literary criticism saw the publication of a number of studies generally grouped under the term thematic criticism. Such books included D. G. Jones's Butterfly on Rock: A Study of Themes and Images in Canadian Literature (1970), Margaret Atwood's Survival: A Thematic Guide to Canadian Literature (1972), and John Moss's Patterns of Isolation in English Canadian Fiction (1974). These books were Canadian in focus and historical in arrangement, offering readings of deliberately selected texts.Many recent books of criticism are descendants of these thematic critics, for they too are Canadian in focus though not necessarily historical in arrangement, and they offer readings of deliberately ...

  • Being Apart: Theoretical and Existential Resistance in Africana Literature
           by LaRose T. Parris (review)
    • Abstract: Being Apart is, like most of the texts it addresses, formally conservative but conceptually radical. A chronological account of black New World writers' responses to Enlightenment ideas about race, freedom, and personhood, this study follows out a story and a canon well known in Africana studies and familiar to many outside the field—but with a signal difference. LaRose Parris does not primarily describe her Africana subjects in terms of critical reactions to the killing contradictions of Western modernity. Instead she emphasizes prolepsis, speculation, and intellectual community. Writers including David Walker, Frederick Douglass, W. E. B. Du Bois, Frantz Fanon, and Kamau Brathwaite are, in her analysis, exponents ... Read More

  • Insurgent Testimonies: Witnessing Colonial Trauma in Modern and Anglophone
           Literature by Nicole M. Rizzuto (review)
    • Abstract: There are many reasons to admire Nicole Rizzuto's Insurgent Testimonies: Witnessing Colonial Trauma in Modern and Anglophone Literature, but the book's most impressive aspect is Rizzuto's ability to identify and challenge shared assumptions within multiple discourses by practicing what she refers to in her introduction as the "increasingly anachronistic" technique of close reading (33). Joseph Conrad, Rebecca West, H. G. de Lisser, V. S. Reid, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o: such a corpus immediately places Rizzuto within the discourses of world literature and postcolonial literature—though the totalizing former seems to be increasingly swallowing the detotalizing latter, a movement that Rizzuto commendably resists—as well as ...

  • The Wallflower Avant-Garde: Modernism, Sexuality, and Queer Ekphrasis by
           Brian Glavey (review)
    • Abstract: I wasn't sure what I thought of Brian Glavey's The Wallflower Avant-Garde: Modernism, Sexuality, and Queer Ekphrasis when I first finished reading it. This is not a loud book by any means; thinking ekphrastically, it reminded me more of Keats's "foster-child of silence and slow time" than a work emphatically calling attention to itself. But as I returned to the book and read it again, I was repeatedly struck by Glavey's careful and illuminating literary studies which, like Keats's urn, accrue meaning over time as he invites us to reexamine his ideas through the perspectives offered by the group of authors he examines. Glavey is making a significant contribution with this book, uniting queer theory and modernist ... Read More

  • Redeemer Nation in the Interregnum: An Untimely Meditation on the American
           Vocation by William V. Spanos (review)
    • Abstract: William V. Spanos has expended considerable critical energy in recent years pushing back against the transnational turn in American studies. He is concerned about what he takes to be this turn's failure to adequately register the exceptions the US continues to claim for itself in exerting inordinate influence over the global order. Redeemer Nation in the Interregnum: An Untimely Meditation on the American Vocation argues that we live in an "in-between time" in which the foremost critical imperative is thinking this influence in terms of "the indissoluble relationship of the local and the global, the national and the transnational" (xvii).While the transnationalist critics whom Spanos dubs "new New Americanists" ...
