  • Incomparable Empires: Modernism and the Translation of Spanish and
           American Literature by Gayle Rogers (review)
    • Abstract: Gayle Rogers's Incomparable Empires successfully places Spain—as figured in the work of canonical modernist writers from both the United States and Spain—at the very core of the scholarly study of global and comparative modernisms today. Rogers's book, published in Jessica Berman and Paul Saint-Amour's relatively recent and already excellent Modernist Latitudes series at Columbia University Press, constitutes an important intervention in the reshaping of modernist studies in Anglo-American academia today. Incomparable Empires problematizes the monolingual Anglophone paradigm that has traditionally characterized the study of modernist literature by carefully tracing different modernist strategies to literary ...

  • Little Magazine, World Form by Eric Bulson (review)
    • Abstract: How do you write about a topic that lies beyond any one person's reach' That's the challenge Eric Bulson takes up in his ambitious new book, Little Magazine, World Form, in which he attempts to move modernist studies in the direction of world literature through the medium of the little magazine. Starting with the notion that modernism and the avant-garde grew out of little magazines, Bulson argues that our current understanding of this print medium is so narrowly focused by language and national culture that we have overlooked little cultural magazines that circulated just across our borders, including the wide array of such magazines that were published around the globe between the 1910s and 1960s. One of his aims ... Read More

  • Modern Print Artefacts: Textual Materiality and Literary Value in British
           Print Culture, 1890–1930s by Patrick Collier (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Patrick Collier's Modern Print Artefacts contains an important clue to one of its key polemics. Although the book appears in Edinburgh's Critical Studies in Modernist Culture series, the artifacts under investigation in Collier's study are modern rather than modernist, and the distinction is a crucial one. Collier is resolutely unwilling to jump through any hoops to make his material fit even the loosest paradigm of an aesthetic modernism. For the most part, Modern Print Artefacts is concerned with shining a light on the duplicitous way that literary value is encoded in his chosen materials, but in a bold coda Collier explicitly decries the way that similar notions of value play out in the present ...

  • The Language of Vision: Photography and Southern Literature in the 1930s
           and After by Joseph R. Millichap (review)
    • Abstract: The past twenty years have seen a relative explosion of criticism exploring intersections of literature and photography, particularly during the modernist period that was such a fertile time for both. Joseph Millichap contributes to this scholarship with a valuable work of synthesis focusing on the reciprocal creative relationship between photography and writers in the US South during the 1930s and shortly after. This is the period of literary production commonly referred to as the Southern Renaissance, and Millichap makes a compelling argument for the importance of photography in the work of several authors often associated with that movement: James Agee, William Faulkner, Robert Penn Warren, Eudora Welty, and ...

  • Espionage and Exile: Fascism and Anti-Fascism in British Spy Fiction and
           Film by Phyllis Lassner (review)
    • Abstract: In Espionage and Exile, Phyllis Lassner argues for a connection between twentieth century fictions about spies and the real-world plight of European exiles and refugees from the 1930s up through the Cold War. Understood "as a political condition and state of being and identity," "exile" also describes the state of many of the protagonists of espionage fiction (3). Lassner writes that the six British writers and filmmakers whose work she examines all tie "the exiled condition that defines the spy's place in the fictional secret world to that of the stateless refugee in twentieth-century history" (218). In doing so, they use genres associated with light entertainment to make the kind of "critical intervention" into ... Read More

  • Ecocriticism in the Modernist Imagination: Forster, Woolf, and Auden by
           Kelly Sultzbach (review)
    • Abstract: Modernist studies has been somewhat late to the ecocritical party. In fact, with the possible exception of some chapters in Raymond Williams's still-impressive The Country and the City (1973), the first wave of literary ecocriticism (from the seventies until the early nineties) largely bypassed modernism altogether. Even scholars identified with the "new" modernist studies—with orientations toward technology, comparative media, gender and sexuality, urbanization, globalization, and empire—were largely uninterested in questions of the natural, nonhuman world. Now, in arguably the third (or possibly even fourth!) wave of ecocriticism, driven by the planetary context of the Anthropocene, the limits of the human, and ... Read More

  • Impossible Modernism: T. S. Eliot, Walter Benjamin, and the Critique of
           Historical Reason by Robert S. Lehman (review)
    • Abstract: How modernism transformed the conditions of history is the subject of Robert S. Lehman's excellent Impossible Modernism, a book that should change the way we do history in modernist studies. Lehman surveys recent and current historicist work in the field and rightly argues that "[i]n their eagerness to read modernism historically, critics have rarely paused to consider how history is read by modernism" (xv). We locate modernist texts within their historical contexts, interested in how they "respond (critically, ideologically) to the givenness of historical facts," but without recognizing how modernist texts existed to question this very givenness (xiv). The problem is ironic, because modernism ask us to "rethink ... Read More

  • Radical Empiricists: Five Modernist Close Readers by Helen Thaventhiran
           (review)
    • Abstract: Helen Thaventhiran's Radical Empiricists: Five Modernist Close Readers opens with an interesting proposition: that when we discuss the history of close reading, we cease to be close readers. The five modernist close readers mentioned in Thaventhiran's subtitle—T. S. Eliot, I. A. Richards, William Empson, R. P. Blackmur, and Marianne Moore—"transformed the old functions of criticism" by paying "radically close attention" to literature (1). Sadly, we have repaid them by merely squinting at their own prose, in a hurried attempt to extract from it the "ideas and influences" that form the infrastructure of our familiar critical genealogies. Thaventhiran's book reverses this trend: snipping the links that superficially ... Read More

  • Epic Negation: The Dialectical Poetics of Late Modernism by C. D. Blanton
           (review)
    • Abstract: In reviewing a book that carefully attunes itself to historical dates, I begin by marking a more recent dateline: the death of Derek Walcott on March 17, 2017. Examining Epic Negation in its wake inflects my account here. C. D. Blanton grounds his reading of modernism and late modernism in the UK through T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. Reading the span of The Criterion (1922–39) as an index of modernism itself, Blanton overlays Eliot's signature journal onto the period between the Great War and the Blitz. Consequently, The Criterion, not The Waste Land, becomes Eliot's major epic. More audaciously, their mutually assured negation through the poet's "dialectical liquidation" of poetry yields a phenomenon that Blanton ... Read More

  • Laboratory, Library, Database: London's Avant-Garde Drama Societies and
           Ephemeral Repertoire
    • Abstract: In November 1901, a London play-producing organization known as the Stage Society sent circulars to its 523 members announcing one Sunday evening and one Monday matinée performance of Mrs. Warren's Profession. The Lord Chamberlain had banned George Bernard Shaw's play three years earlier, and although the Stage Society's members-only performances technically were exempt from both the pre-performance licensing requirement and the longstanding prohibition on Sunday theatrics, managers feared the loss of their operating licenses. By the time the play premiered at the New Lyric Club in January, the Stage Society had been forced to change venues three times, after approaching at least twelve theaters, two music halls ...

  • Revolutionary Boredom: Uninteresting Affects, Operatic Modernity, and
           American Feminism in Stein's The Mother of Us All
    • Abstract: "Machen wir nie Vergnügen!—wir sind verloren, wenn man von der Kunst wieder hedonistisch denkt""Die Langeweile ist der Traumvogel, der das Ei der Erfahrung ausbrütet""You're writing about Gertrude Stein's operas'" my operatic mentor (the person whose taste in opera I most strived to emulate) asked, gesturing towards me with his Nebbiolo. "But why' They're boring."Such crushing remarks abound in any opera lover's apprenticeship—the process of learning how (and how not) to feel in response to operatic objects, an undeclared orthopedics of the passions. To like opera is to adopt a certain sophisticated (viz., wrong, suspect) attitude and willingly perform a bad, since excessive and incomprehensible, taste; ... Read More

  • Paris Dada and the Transfiguration of Boredom
    • Abstract: Il n'y a pas moyen de s'ennuyer: ce serait au détriment des caresses et tout à l'heure nous n'y serons plus.(There is no way to get bored; that would be to the detriment of caresses and soon we shall be there no more.)By his own account, the artist Francis Picabia left the Dada movement out of boredom. In a sarcastic statement from 1921, "M. Picabia Separates from the Dadas," he writes:Everything is boring, isn't it' The falling leaves are boring, growing leaves are boring, warmth is boring, cold is boring. Clocks that don't ring are boring, those that do ring are boring. To have a telephone is boring, to not have a telephone is boring. People who die are boring, as are those who don't die.2In little more than ... Read More

  • Dada's Birthday Bibliography
    • Abstract: It is interesting to note that in 2016, the centenary of Dada the Merriam-Webster dictionary deemed "surreal" the word of the year.1 While Dada may be foremost on the mind of scholars of the avant-garde on this centennial of the initial Dada events in Zurich, the word itself has yet to become vernacular in the English language. The distinction is notable, I think. Despite its notoriety, this "ism" may have preserved something of its kernel of specificity—not only etymologically, but also in terms of aesthetic character. What is it about Dada that lends it this somewhat monadic or persistent—perhaps even resistant—quality in the face of historical permutation'"Surreal" is an entirely different case: in English the ...

  • New Modernist Autonomies
    • Abstract: In his 2011 article for the minnesota review, "The New Modernist Studies: What's Left of Political Formalism'," Max Brzezinski implicates Rebecca Walkowitz, Douglas Mao, and Martin Puchner in the instigation of a methodological turn in contemporary modernist studies that has so far betrayed no signs of reversing course.1 This turn, Brzezinski worries, is notable less for having expanded what Mao and Walkowitz describe in their now-canonical 2008 co-authored PMLA article as the "vertical" and "horizontal" vectors directing the future of modernist studies, than it is for capitulating to the "political flattening" of academic research that characterizes the neoliberal ethos of the twenty-first century university: "the ...

  • Can You Tell Me How to Get to the Warsaw Ghetto'
    • Abstract: "An enormous cap of dark grey smoke above the Extinct City in the Capital maintains, with the weight of its material, the reality of the fiction that is the emptiness: the City in the City, the City that no longer is."In the courtyard behind the apartment building at 55 Sienna Street, one can still visit a rare fragment of the wall that, for a brief period between November 1940 and October 1941, marked the southern boundary of the Warsaw Ghetto. Though situated just northwest of the Central Train Station, in the heart of the Polish capital's downtown, it is remarkably hard to find. To approach its east side, you have to be buzzed through a gate by a guard who, though unseen, is apparently keeping watch for ... Read More

  • Red Rosa: On the Gender of the November Revolution in the German
           Avant-Gardes
    • Abstract: Forty years ago Klaus Theweleit published his groundbreaking analysis of fascism, Männerphantasien (1977–78). Theweleit's study turned to the literary fiction and fantasies of German Freikorps soldiers, many of whom had operated as shock troopers during World War I, then, immediately after the war as volunteers violently suppressing the German working class's November Revolution of 1918–19, and, finally, in the run-up to and during World War II, as high-ranked Nazi officials. Theweleit's Männerphantasien unearthed the imaginary that facilitated the production of death by the Freikorpsmen and lay bare the crucial role of gender and sexuality in their conscious and subconscious actions.1 For these men not only saw ...

They can keep their old £40 and be hanged to them. Shall I pick the eyes out of a story for £40. I'm furious with Sadler. No, Ill never agree.""I feel I was too undisciplined about my story & Constable. I leave it to you. Youre my Cricket. If you agree to what they say—why then, alls well (and I DO want the money). Je t'aime."This exchange of letters between Katherine Mansfield and John Middleton Murry hints at a story familiar to both writers and lovers: to negotiations over independence, to a desperate weighing of what is free against what must be paid for, to a pattern of ...

  • "My Most Humiliating Jim Crow Experience": Afro-Modernist Critiques of
           Eugenics and Medical Segregation
    • Abstract: "This is the situation of the Negroes of Philadelphia to-day: because of their physical health they receive a larger portion of charity, spend a larger proportion of their earnings for physicians and medicine, throw on the community a larger number of helpless widows and orphans than either they or the city can afford. Why is this' Primarily it is because the Negroes are as a mass ignorant of the laws of health. One has but to visit a Seventh Ward church on Sunday night and see an audience of 1500 sit two and three hours in the foul atmosphere of a closely shut auditorium to realize that long-formed habits of life explain much of Negro consumption and pneumonia; again the Negroes live in unsanitary dwellings ...

  • The Compsons Were Here: Indexicality, the Actuality, and the Crisis of
           Meaning in The Sound and the Fury
    • Abstract: "The ontological scatter that is accessible to an intensively scattered perception bespeaks a crisis of the object, a crisis of meaning.""'Is you all seen anything of a quarter down here.' Luster said.'What quarter.''The one I had here this morning.' Luster said. 'I lost it somewhere. It fell through this here hole in my pocket.'"2 The Sound and the Fury (1929) is propelled onto the page by an unpredictable and trivial occurrence. As the dialogue indicates, Luster loses a coin through a hole in his pocket and thus begins both the search for the money and our initiation into the Compson family history. What if the quarter had not fallen through Luster's pocket' Would the novel read differently if Benjy and Luster ... Read More
