  • Is the Trans in Transnational the Trans in Transgender?
    • Abstract: When Orlando falls into his transformative trance at the midpoint of Virginia Woolf's romp of a novel, he is an agent of the British Empire in Constantinople, at the moment of receiving his newly conferred Dukedom. The ceremony is a pageant of Empire, which gathers "people of all nationalities" to celebrate Orlando's status, while the text makes frequent reference to the show of British superiority in this event.1 Yet, awakening as female, Orlando also awakens to life with the Gypsies, abandoning, for a time, not only the ambassadorial dwelling and its trappings of imperial power, but also his/her national identity. Orlando "dressed herself in those Turkish coats and trousers which can be worn indifferently by ... Read More

  • The Assertion of Coevalness: African Literature and Modernist Studies
    • Abstract: More than a decade into the shift toward a global modernist paradigm, work putting the extraordinary modern and contemporary output of sub-Saharan African literature in conversation with these new models remains infrequent. When it does occur, it often stops short of confronting the currently unstable, expanding, and contested nature of modernism as a category. This article argues against the longstanding divide between African and modernist literary studies. The distance between these two fields is not only causing mutual harm, but impeding efforts to understand twentieth-century literature and indeed the relationship between literature and modernity more generally. I will survey some of the causes of tension ... Read More

  • Collecting Ghostly Things: André Breton and Joseph Cornell
    • Abstract: The collection André Breton left behind at his death in 1966 was unified by ghostliness, surrealism's hauntedness, which grew out of the early experiments with automatic trances in Breton's apartment in 1922–23 and was later embodied in the surrealist propensity to see qualities of life in things, that, having been used and handled, were believed to have led former lives (fig. 1).1 Breton identified intimately with the ghostliness he found in things because he believed the objects he loved housed hidden impulses, memories akin to the dream traces human beings carry in their unconscious minds. Breton's collection served as his laboratory, both in Paris and later in New York, where he lived in exile during World War ... Read More

  • Liminality and In-Betweeness: The "Domestic Pieces" of Fillide Levasti
    • Abstract: Open shutters frame the dark interiors of Intimacy (1933), a painting by Italian artist Fillide Levasti (1883–1966) (fig. 1).1 We do not know what is hidden behind the French doors; it could be orderly spaces or dusty corners, messy kitchens, or tidy furnishings. To the painter, the domestic rooms do not seem to matter as much as what happens right outside them, in the jutting spaces of back balconies, where female characters perform their chores. The point of view is frontal and coplanar because the artist portrays the scene from the same elevation as the figures represented. In fact, she looks at them from her own balcony or studio window. The artist and her characters are on the same level, both literally and in ... Read More

  • Musil's Ontology of the Present: Lessons on the Hermeneutics of Modernity
    • Abstract: As readers of The Man Without Qualities (1930–43) are well aware, Robert Musil is undeniably preoccupied with the possibilities and limitations of specific ways of thinking, and perhaps above all, with the possibilities of thinking in ways other than those that have become institutionalized in or as modernity.1 These concerns run from his dissertation on Ernst Mach's positivism, through his essays, and into the very matter and style of The Man Without Qualities, the novel for which he is most widely known today. Such a sustained effort to grasp modernity in terms of its characteristic modes of thought corresponds to one half of a double entendre in the title of Jürgen Habermas's The Philosophical Discourse of ...

  • "On a Wet Rock in the Atlantic": J. M. Synge and Ethnographies of the
           Irish Revival
    • Abstract: Dec. 1. I have been reading Herbert Spencer and my creed is now very simple. Humanity has evolved from the conditions of the world, and will return to the nothing it has come from. Each separate life is but a ripple on the waves,—a blade of grass on the roadside. For those who fail, there is no hope. They are like the dead leaves in autumn, blown here and there before their final dissolution. In my useless agony I am only hurtful to my fellows. Why should I endure it?1John Synge's "Étude Morbide," written around 1899, takes the form of "an imaginary portrait," and thus does not pretend to provide autobiographical statements of any authority.2 There are shades here of the Bohemian student who had spent much of the ...

  • "BLAST SPORT"?: Vorticism, Sport, and William Roberts's Boxers
    • Abstract: When the English Vorticist group launched their magazine Blast in July 1914, thirty-one of the first forty-three pages were taken up with a pair of manifestoes. These were radical not simply for the content, including the two lists of people who were either condemned by being Blasted or the recipients of a Blessing, but also in terms of typographical style and layout, with numbered points and a bold font in a variety of sizes. Although obviously indebted to similar experiments in other parts of Europe, especially those of the Italian futurists, Blast was unlike anything that had been seen before in an English-language little magazine. But Blast also had an international impact, being singled out twelve years later ... Read More

  • Beasts in the Jungle: Henry James, William James, and the Animal Turn
    • Abstract: The "animal question"—the question of how to read and respond to the ontological, epistemological, and moral status of nonhuman animals—has become, as Sherryl Vint notes, the "pressing political question of our times."1 Recent work by Michael Lundblad and Benjamin Bateman has sought to apply an "animal turn" of the screw to the writing of Henry James, finally asking us to take seriously the beastly quality of James's "The Beast in the Jungle" (1903). This article seeks to situate such recent work in a broader account of James's investment in animality, one that can be traced through a range of his fiction and nonfiction writings, especially his major novels The Portrait of a Lady (1881) and The Golden Bowl (1904); ...

  • Beckett's Non-Anthropomorphic Anthropology
    • Abstract: What explains the apparent connection between Samuel Beckett and philosophy? Bruno Clément tried to formulate a reply to this question, arguing that "there is a 'philosophical' discourse already in Beckett's texts … so strongly giving rise to confusion that one might speak about a 'philosophy' of Beckett, through which one believes that the influence of such and such a philosopher, such and such a philosophy might be detected in his novels, plays, and even in his poems."1 Nonetheless, Beckett was very explicit when, in an interview with Tom Driver, he stated emphatically that he was not a philosopher. The other statement that is often quoted in connection with the question of Beckett's relation to philosophy is ... Read More

  • Sounding Irish Radio at Midcentury
    • Abstract: Reading through these two excellent new volumes situated at the intersection of radio studies and modern Irish literature, one feels presented with two very different instantiations of the radio listener. On the one hand, we have the dial-twirling shortwave enthusiast, stationed in (perhaps) Cork, and tuning in to transmissions Irish in affiliation but emanating from Dublin, Addis Ababa, New York City, Belfast, Geneva, London, and Berlin—transmissions that dazzle by their variety and that impart an awareness of their connectedness in dispersal. On the other hand, we have the idealized Third Programme listener of the midcentury BBC, at domestic ease in (perhaps, again) Belfast, attending closely and in the best ... Read More

  • Elizabeth Bishop's Brazil by Bethany Hicok (review)
    • Abstract: A laurel rescued Daphne, an oak sheltered Bilbo Baggins, and a cashew tree united the literature of two continents when Elizabeth Bishop suffered an allergic reaction to its fruit while sojourning in Brazil in 1951. The aristocrat Lota de Macedo Soares nursed her back to health and into love, inviting her to move into her renowned modernist house above a resort town near Rio de Janeiro. Bishop did not quit the country finally until 1971, the year the Brazilian government inducted her into the Ordem de Rio Branco.In addition to her diverse works on South American subjects—from celebrated poems to travelogues and a Life World Library volume on Brazil—the award recognized her promotion of the nation's artists ...

  • Proust's Latin Americans by Rubén Gallo (review)
    • Abstract: One of the pleasures of doing comparative work on Latin American and French writing and art is discovering the overwhelming wealth of connections over the course of at least two centuries: of Latin Americans making cultural pilgrimage to France (mostly Paris) and of French artists' and writers' attentions to the Hispanophone Americas, from Cuba to Chile. From the nineteenth century onward, Paris in particular held, in the Americas, the status of the capital of culture, and although many Latin Americans sought "culture" in France, they, and the French who visited the Americas, also brought new forms of music, dance, architecture, and writing to Paris. In examining Marcel Proust and his work in relationship to Latin ... Read More

  • At the Mercy of their Clothes: Modernism, the Middlebrow, and British
           Garment Culture by Celia Marshik (review)
    • Abstract: I was extremely glad that I had just finished reading Celia Marshik's excellent new book, At the Mercy of their Clothes: Modernism, the Middlebrow, and British Garment Culture, when a student in my Ulysses class asked me about the notorious man in the mackintosh who haunts the pages of James Joyce's novel. There have, of course, been various attempts made by Joyce scholars to explain his presence in or significance for the novel but none has been as satisfactory as Marshik's. The mac, she proposes, was a literary device used by many writers at the beginning of the twentieth century to express concerns about "a mass-produced garment that turned persons into things, making individuals indistinguishable from one ...

  • Figures of Catastrophe: The Condition of Culture Novel by Francis Mulhern
           (review)
    • Abstract: It has become commonplace to note that for the past fifteen years the central thrust of modernist studies has been toward expansion. Nearly as clear is that this expansion has entailed the progressive weakening of modernism itself as a field-defining term. Both tendencies, and their largely positive and productive implications, are now taken for granted by most. So it is striking to encounter a study that speaks to important questions about aesthetics, politics, and periodization foregrounded by these recent imperatives and even ultimately carries certain of those imperatives to their logical conclusions, but also decidedly refuses assent to the terms offered by the new modernist studies for our understanding of ...

  • Modernism and Opera ed. by Richard Begam and Matthew Wilson Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Modernism and Opera should be required reading for every scholar of modernism. Finely edited and persuasively introduced by Richard Begam and Matthew Wilson Smith, this superb collection of twelve essays offers lucid, thought-provoking insights on modernism as an intermedial and interdisciplinary practice. Various aspects of modernism are taken up by the contributors, with the result that "modernism" emerges as a complex, plural, and adaptable concept. The essays, arranged chronologically, brim with pertinent historical information. National operatic traditions—Czech, German, French, British, Finnish—are handled with scholarly care. All the essays in Modernism and Opera elaborate the meaning of "modernism" as it ... Read More

  • Dada and Existentialism: The Authenticity of Ambiguity by Elizabeth
           Benjamin (review)
    • Abstract: Centenary years offer a natural moment of repose and reflection, a celebration of success and longevity, and a time of reassessment. With the centenary of a movement as active and vital as Dada, it seems fitting that this reflection be not one of passive contemplation, but one that is enterprising and engaged. Elizabeth Benjamin's Dada and Existentialism: The Authenticity of Ambiguity partakes of this active reassessment by presenting the first major study of Dada in the light of Existentialist thought and texts. The book offers a positive reading of a movement once understood as a purely nihilistic gesture against art, its institutions, and the regimes that appropriated and manipulated art for their own gain.This ...

  • Uncanny Encounters: Literature, Psychoanalysis, and the End of Alterity by
           John Zilcosky (review)
    • Abstract: John Zilcosky's Uncanny Encounters is a compelling book in many respects and a frustrating one in other respects. While there have been several texts documenting the conceptual genesis of the uncanny—research on the theme has almost become oversaturated—none have quite taken the approach offered by Zilcosky. Indeed, his thesis is quite original. The central idea is that the uncanny is less a confrontation with the alterity of difference and more an encounter with a strange familiarity. The difference is subtle but critical. The subtitle of his book is thus an ambitious if not ambiguous one. To speak in terms of the end of alterity—indeed to speak in terms of forecasting an end more broadly—is a risk that some ... Read More

  • Archaeologies of Modernity: Avant-Garde Bildung by Rainer Rumold (review)
    • Abstract: Paris, circa 1924. The German Jewish expressionist extraordinaire Carl Einstein urges transition editor Eugène Jolas to head to Weimar Berlin, a cultural moment on its last legs. Though Jolas would not visit Berlin for half a decade, despite translating such writers as Carl Sternheim, Georg Trakl, and Gottfried Benn, the paramountcy of Einstein's counsel would prove more than revelatory for the young journalist. Einstein was profoundly troubled by a younger generation of poets living in Germany during those crisis years—artists, who, he prophetically felt, were under threat of stagnancy, almost a decade before the rise of Nazism. A mere echo, he'd announce, of a once-vibrant aesthetic formation. Ever buoyant ... Read More

  • Cold War Modernists: Art, Literature, and American Cultural Diplomacy by
           Greg Barnhisel (review)
    • Abstract: What use is art? I suspect that I have not been alone, among this journal's readers, in asking that question recently. What use, in particular, might have been imagined for a kind of art that, in its heyday, defiantly insisted on its autonomy, its aestheticism, a form of art that seemed to express, at every turn, hostility towards bourgeois society and the political institutions and economies of utility upon which that society was built? What use, in other words, might have been imagined for modernism? Greg Barnhisel's latest book, Cold War Modernists, gives that question a richly researched and intricate answer, one with important implications for our understanding of the history of modernism's reception and ...

  • Feast of Excess: A Cultural History of the New Sensibility by George
           Cotkin (review)
    • Abstract: George Cotkin's brisk and engaging Feast of Excess retells a familiar story, about how a series of innovative art works, essays, and performances created between 1950 and the mid-1970s transformed American culture. The sensibility they expressed—what Cotkin calls "the New Sensibility"—remained avant-garde during this initial, formative period, but has since become dominant. By the 1970s, as Cotkin sees it, American culture had been resituated along an emphatically rebellious, confessional axis. "Acts of excess; going to extremes; focusing on violence, sexuality, and madness; blurring lines between genres, between artists and audience, had always been present in art and culture of the past," Cotkin acknowledges (2). ...
