  • Destroyed by Poetry: Alice Corbin and the Little Magazine Effect
    • Abstract: I haven’t anything to send you for the anthology but scraps. I’ve done almost nothing since the magazine started . . . I send a few scraps with little confidence of their being worth anything. In 1915, three years into her tenure as Associate Editor of Poetry, Alice Corbin dismissed her own poems—twice—as “scraps” in a response to Ezra Pound’s solicitation for his Catholic Anthology.2 As Poetry’s Foreign Correspondent, Pound worked closely with Corbin, and both were blunt, even brutal, in appraising their peers.3 So when Corbin wrote to Pound as a poet, not a fellow editor, she did so with understandable trepidation. But Corbin’s “scraps” are more than a hedge. They are her central metaphor for the work ... Read More

  • “The Language of Behavior”: Gurdjieff and the Emergence of
           Modernist Autobiography
    • Abstract: Russian-Armenian mystic George Gurdjieff was a controversial and intriguing figure when he arrived in New York in January of 1924.1 A year before, he had caused an uproar when Katherine Mansfield died of tuberculosis under his care at Le Prieuré, his spiritual retreat near Fontainebleau. Gurdjieff capitalized on this attention, sending his appointed proselytizer, A. R. Orage—former editor of the influential London literary journal, The New Age—to New York a few months ahead of his own arrival to drum up interest. Orage’s introductory talks ensured captivated crowds at Gurdjieff’s mystical dance performances at Carnegie Hall and Lesley Hall. Newspapers reported celebrity sightings at these “cult” events at ...

  • Queer Entomology: Virginia Woolf’s Butterflies
    • Abstract: Virginia Woolf shares with Victorian entomologists a fascination with maleness as neither a fixed form nor an established fact, but as an uncertain anatomy. In this article, I explain the ways Woolf’s voracious reading of popular Victorian entomology—from Charles Darwin’s studies of butterflies to Eleanor Ormerod’s specialized work for agriculture and F. O. Morris’s popular tracts on butterfly collecting—provides her vocabularies to reimagine maleness not as a conclusive but as a debatable form. In her essay “Old Bloomsbury” (1941, posthumously), Woolf perceives, for example, E. M. Forster more as a butterfly specimen than as a man. She emphasizes his “erratic, irregular” motion more than his maleness. As ... Read More

  • The Optics of Orientation: Walter Benjamin and Mikhail Kaufman in Moscow
    • Abstract: How would a film look if Walter Benjamin had been behind the movie camera' Miriam Hansen entertains this possibility in Cinema and Experience (2012) when she speculates about an “imaginary city film” made according to Benjamin’s aesthetic principles. Such a film, Hansen writes, would include a variety of avant-garde techniques “from French Impressionism to Soviet experimental cinema, in particular montage (that is, discontinuous and rhythmic editing), nonconventional and expressive framing, and camera movement.”1 Yet Hansen’s version of a Benjaminian film practice is inferred almost entirely from Benjamin’s film theory, while his descriptive essays on European cities—“Naples,” “Marseilles,” and the focus of ...

  • Reading Capital, Writing History: Pound’s Marx
    • Abstract: The epic is a genre of poetry that, according to Ezra Pound’s coinage from 1934, includes history. And yet, as C. D. Blanton has recently reminded us, this description drives an irresolvable contradiction deep into the aesthetic substance of literary modernism. “Implicit in Pound’s definition,” he argues, “is a paradoxical recognition that the history so invoked can never fully be represented as anything more than an expanse of quantitative detail: a bad infinity.”1 While an epic impulse might charge literature with the task of grasping historical totality, the era in which the epic underwent this modernist redefinition takes place only after history had made itself unavailable to any sort of conventional ...

  • Revolutionary Shadows: Borderlands Identity in the Fiction of Américo
           Paredes
    • Abstract: Américo Paredes’s two novels register the impact of modernity on native mexicano culture in the Mexican American borderlands: George Washington Gómez (1990, written in the 30s and 40s), a Mexican American bildungsroman, and The Shadow (1998, written in the 50s), which tracks the psychic disintegration of a Mexican ex-revolutionary officer. George Washington Gómez and The Shadow are respectively set in, and in close vicinity to, the twin border cities Brownsville and Matamoros on the north and south banks of the Rio Grande (under the fictional names Jonesville-on-the-Grande and Morelos).1 Indeed, the novels take place within a few miles of each other, on opposite sides of the border, at around the same time ...

  • Snapshots of the Eternal City: Ralph Ellison in Rome
    • Abstract: History, science of the past, science of the present. “The best of Rome remains its past,” writes Ralph Ellison to Albert Murray from his studio at the American Academy in Rome, where he resided from 1955 to 1957.2 In the midst of lengthy discussions of books, political events, and travel plans, Ellison voices his frustration with the lack of photographic equipment and jazz records to be found in the eternal city. In 1955 Rome might have been “Hollywood on the Tiber,” but the country had yet to fully recover from the destruction of World War II.3 No wonder that procuring items such as lenses, cameras, and special film stock is among Ellison’s major preoccupations, second only to the progress on his ...

  • What is a Little Thing': Crepuscular Still Lifes and the Italian
           Avant-garde
    • Abstract: In his most highly regarded poem, “Desolation of the Poor Sentimental Poet” (“Desolazione del povero poeta sentimentale”), Italian poet Sergio Corazzini (1886–1907), speaking in the guise of a whimpering child, declares, “I love the simple life of things.”1 A few lines later, referencing the poet’s own tuberculosis, he compares the decay of his body to the decay of everyday objects: “and I die, a little bit, each day. / You see: just like things” (Sunday Evening, 34). The transience of animate and inanimate life, expressed so poignantly by Corazzini in this poem, is a theme that also informs the more ironic poetry of his contemporary, the Turinese poet Guido Gozzano (1883–1916). In a 1907 text, “The Road to ... Read More

  • Poetry and Anarchism
    • Abstract: During the 20 January 2017 presidential inauguration demonstrations in Washington, D.C., an antifascist protestor identified as part of an anarchist Black Bloc punched white nationalist Richard Spencer, touching off an absurd yet serious national debate: “is it okay to punch a Nazi'” That the video clip gained meme status indicates a widespread frustration, a perceived ineffectiveness of civil political discourse and a readiness to abandon nonviolent means for more violent tactics or, at least, to check the quiet normalization of the far right with a gleefully small-scale action that, though violent, is schoolyard in its proportions. In some sense the protestor’s surprise punch is an avant-garde gesture, an ... Read More

  • The Arcades: Contemporary Art and Walter Benjamin by Jewish Museum
           (review)
    • Abstract: For Walter Benjamin, art was a revolutionary tool. He wrote about the poetry of Baudelaire, the photographs of Atget, the work of art in the age of mechanical reproduction. In surrealism, the contemporary art of his day, he recognized both the spell of the dream and the potential for revolutionary transformation. In turn, artists have been deeply inspired, sometimes directly, sometimes via cultural transmission, by the mesmerizing reflections of Benjamin. A show of contemporary art informed by Benjamin’s writings could illuminate both the works themselves and the continuing relevance of Benjamin’s ideas. The show, The Arcades: Contemporary Art and Walter Benjamin, does not. On display at the ... Read More

  • The Book World: Selling and Distributing British Literature, 1900–1940
           ed. by Nicola Wilson (review)
    • Abstract: The turn of the twenty-first century saw the return of the literary marketplace to studies of modernism. Kevin J. H. Dettmar and Stephen Watt’s edited collection Marketing Modernisms (1997), Lawrence Rainey’s Institutions of Modernism (1998), and Joyce Piell Wexler’s Who Paid for Modernism' (1997), among others, registered a surge of critical interest in the material realities that underpinned texts and reputations, and fueled a continuing stream of work that mines publishers’ archives, the correspondence of writers and agents, and periodicals. These works foregrounded the now-inescapable truth that the literature that has survived has always been paid for somehow, has gained its survival in part through the ... Read More

  • Reconnecting Aestheticism and Modernism: Continuities, Revisions,
           Speculations ed. by Bénédicte Coste, Catherine Delyfer, and Christine
           Reynier (review)
    • Abstract: “CURSE WITH FORCE OF WHIRLWIND THE BRITANNIC AESTHETE.” So says Wyndham Lewis in BLAST, in one of the most conspicuous of the myriad feints by which many modernists worked to conceal their debts to Victorian aestheticism. In their new edited volume, Bénédicte Coste, Catherine Delyfer, and Christine Reynier add to work by scholars like Vincent Sherry and Rita Felski—to name only two particularly well-known voices among many others—in conceptualizing modernism as an elaboration on, rather than a repudiation of, the formal self-consciousness and the historical, sexual, and ideological preoccupations of the fin de siècle. The editors’ Introduction provides a useful overview of the relevant critical literature. ... Read More

  • Spectacular Modernity: Dictatorship, Space, and Visuality in Venezuela,
           1948–1958 by Lisa Blackmore (review)
    • Abstract: This book explores the relationships between modernism, modernization, and dictatorship, and in the process repoliticizes the discussion of a crucial period in Venezuelan modernity. Blackmore approaches these relationships through Raymond Williams’s notion of a dominant cultural formation, that “sense of reality shaped by the complex interlocking of political, social, and cultural forces that permeates a whole body of practices, expectations, and aspects of life” (19). Relying on detailed historical research and archival work, Blackmore conducts a complex and nuanced examination that does not avoid the subject’s many sensitive nerves. From 1948 to 1958, the relationships between modernism ... Read More

  • Elizabeth Bishop: A Miracle for Breakfast by Megan Marshall (review)
    • Abstract: The book is an experiment: Megan Marshall, a Pulitzer Prize winner, at times teases us by yanking us away from her main subject a troubled Nova Scotian poet with an appetite for women and drink—in favor of herself, by turns a depressed Bennington College dropout, secretary at Harvard, and poetry student of Bishop in the flesh, thus blurring the boundaries between “biography” and “memoir.” The device adds suspense (we know how the biography must end, not so the memoir). Marshall’s predominant subject is the famous late-modernist poet Elizabeth Bishop: “archaically new,” Marianne Moore said of Bishop’s poetry (60). Critics tend to agree it was Bishop’s “rhetorical simplicity” that made her poems “new”; ... Read More

  • The Astral H.D.: Occult and Religious Sources and Contexts for H.D.’s
           Poetry and Prose by Matte Robinson (review)
    • Abstract: An experience in a hotel room in Corfu shaped the second act of H.D.’s career: while travelling with her companion, Bryher, in the aftermath of World War I, H.D. found herself quite unexpectedly contemplating picture writing on the wall of her hotel, writing that she felt had been projected out of her own head. Her best-known account of this extraordinary psychic event is in her Tribute to Freud, but her poetry and prose of the 1930s onwards repeatedly return to the artistic, personal, and political questions that the events of this trip posed for her life and work. A number of intellectual and religious frameworks helped her in this task. At different times in her life, H.D. drew on ... Read More

  • Form as Revolt: Carl Einstein and the Ground of Modern Art by Sebastian
           Zeidler (review)
    • Abstract: The German-Jewish poet, critic, and philosopher Carl Einstein (1885–1940) was a reluctant practitioner of the “paraphrase,” his name for the practice by which writers and academics reduce concrete, sensuous realities to abstract ideas. But not only did Einstein himself produce an impressive body of critical and theoretical texts on art, thus becoming an art paraphraseur à contrecœur, his own elliptical, hermetic language had subsequently subjected scholars to the same embarrassing predicament. If all serious students of Einstein have wrestled with the intractable yet necessary task of paraphrasing Einstein, Sebastian Zeidler has done so with exceptional vigor. Informed by Zeidler’s PhD ...
