  • Esperantic Modernism: Joyce, Universal Language, and Political Gesture
    • Abstract: In the 1965 movie Incubus, a pre-Star Trek William Shatner plays, with characteristic avidity, the role of Marc, a wounded soldier who comes to the village of Nomen Tuum in search of curative water. While there, he is seduced by a beautiful young succubus, whose appointed task is to prevent Marc’s recuperation and instead deliver his soul to hell. What transpires is a bit too complicated, or silly, to merit recounting in detail, but suffice it to say, in Hollywood-speak, that the film is an arena where Twilight meets The Twilight Zone meets Nietzsche’s The Twilight of the Idols. The director of Incubus, Leslie Stevens, creator of the recently cancelled Outer Limits television series, was seeking a way to make the ... Read More

  • “Addicted to the lubric a little”: Spectacle, Speculation, and the
           Language of Flow in Ulysses
    • Abstract: It is a truth critically acknowledged that the economics in Joyce’s Ulysses are rooted in, and routed through, the commodity form. In his analysis of the novel as a response to the crises of liberal capitalism—one in which, as he puts it, “every idea of cultural system goes awry”—Franco Moretti argues that cultural and social relationships in Ulysses “appear only through the prism of consumption,” and that the equivalence-before-the-market, therefore, of ideological fashions renders aesthetic production incapable “of being either an example to, or a compensation for, the state of the world.”1 Likewise, though more optimistically, Garry Leonard asserts that in Ulysses Joyce “writes the history of consumption ...

  • Becoming “James Overman”: Joyce, Nietzsche, and the Uncreated
           Conscience of the Irish
    • Abstract: On July 13, 1904, not long after he had commenced his first attempt to write a novel, the young James Joyce signed a note to George Roberts with the alias “James Overman.” The self-applied label has been dismissed by many biographers and critics, including Richard Ellmann, as little more than an ironic joke—appended, as it is, to a comically overstated letter card asking for the loan of a quid.1 How else, after all, could we read this allusion to Friedrich Nietzsche’s infamous creation, understood as, say, the exemplar of the self-affirming individual, capable of transcending the slave morality of Christianity and the nihilism of modern European society? This reference to Nietzsche’s philosophy, however ... Read More

  • Planetary Parallax: Ulysses, the Stars, and South Africa
    • Abstract: Leopold Bloom is worried. What if Blazes Boylan has contracted a sexually transmitted disease? What if he gives it to Molly? The thought is shocking, and he tries to shake it off: “Think no more about that.”1 In an effort to distract himself, he raises his “troubled eyes,” and sees the timeball on the Ballast Office (Ulysses, 126). “After one. Timeball on the ballastoffice is down. Dunsink time. Fascinating little book that is of sir Robert Ball’s. Parallax. I never exactly understood. There’s a priest. Could ask him. Par it’s Greek: parallel, parallax” (126). This is a fittingly inauspicious entry into the novel of one of its most evocative words—“parallax” slips in on the back of an STD, serves as a ...

  • Robert Rauschenberg’s “Red Show”: Theater, Painting, and Queerness
           in 1950s Modernism
    • Abstract: Deep and dark is the abyss of the theatre. During the early fall of 1954, Robert Rauschenberg invited a group of friends, including musician John Cage, choreographer Merce Cunningham, and dancer Carolyn Brown, to his Fulton Street studio in lower Manhattan. Brown, who was with the newly formed Merce Cunningham Dance Company at the time, remembers viewing a series of large paintings, mostly red in color, leaning against the wall. “We were thunderstruck,” she recalls. “The new work was garish, giddy, Gypsy caravan-esque. There was an audible, almost communal intake of breath. No one said a word. What an eyeful!”2 How far from the staid abstractions of postwar New York School painters these works seemed to ...

    • Abstract: For a fortnight I was confined to my room, and I surrounded myself with the books of the day (sixteen or seventeen years ago); I mean those volumes which treat of the art of making people happy, wise, and rich, in twenty-four hours . . . I was in a state of mind bordering on intoxication or stupidity. A reader of Suze Orman or Tony Robbins might well have written this passage, but it actually expresses the frustrations of the proto-modernist poet Charles Baudelaire in 1865. Baudelaire’s eulogy for self-help as “the books of the day (sixteen or seventeen years ago)” was somewhat premature. At the same time, his prose poem indicates that the parameters of the self-help industry are more capacious than ... Read More

  • Mallarmé’s Madness: Poetry, Pedagogy, and Translation
    • Abstract: Stéphane Mallarmé was a notoriously bad English teacher. Reports by school inspectors and former students criticize not only Mallarmé’s lack of attention towards his pedagogical duties but also his poor knowledge of the English language and his failure to improve.1 In an attempt to assuage his critics and maintain his teaching position, Mallarmé wrote a series of pedagogical works: Les Mots anglais, a philological study of the English language, complete with a dossier of two manuals of grammatical rules and translations, Thèmes anglais pour toutes les grammaires, and Recueil de “Nursery Rhymes.”2 These texts, however, did little in the way of reassuring his detractors. On the one hand, Les Mots ... Read More

  • Osip and Nadezhda Mandel’shtam and Soviet Utopianism
    • Abstract: One of the most prominent achievements of Stalin’s first five-year plan was the construction of a canal to link the White and Baltic Seas in northern Russia. Built between 1931 and 1933, the White Sea-Baltic Canal involved the labor of approximately 150,000 criminal and political prisoners and the relocation of nearly 4000 peasants.1 Historians estimate that 25,000 prisoners died during its construction.2 Once operational, it served as a transportation route for timber, coal, and other materials from the Far North. The Canal quickly became a fixture in Soviet propaganda. In August 1933, two months after its completion, Maksim Gor’kii organized a tour for 120 writers from the newly formed Writers’ ... Read More

  • Fernand Léger’s Filmic Architecture
    • Abstract: Throughout his work, Fernand Léger (1881–1955) seemed to embrace the technical-industrial modernity of his time. He made paintings of men within the glass, steel, and concrete of the modern city; he made paintings that celebrated workers and technicians—the new men for a new age. In these works the distinction between body and architecture, between man and machine, is often blurred. He made paintings that celebrated the new consumer culture of the interwar years, in which “man” seemingly becomes what he buys. After the early 1920s, he often rendered his figures as if they were indeed part object, part machine, prefabricated: their limbs seemingly drawn from a repository of stylized, manufactured parts.1 And ...

  • The Ethnic Avant-Garde: Minority Cultures and World Revolution by Stephen
           S. Lee (review)
    • Abstract: Stephen S. Lee’s The Ethnic Avant-Garde: Minority Cultures and World Revolution maps the intersection between ethnic American artists and the Soviet vanguard during the 1920s and 1930s. During these years, Lee argues, a variety of ethnic American artists made a “magic pilgrimage” to the USSR, seeing in the Soviet revolution an ally in the struggle against racial discrimination at home. On the other side of the Atlantic, in the early years of the revolutionary period, the Comintern began to reconsider the temporality of world revolution, often through recourse to a seemingly premodern ethnic “other” in Asia and Africa. As Lee shows, this turn to Asia and Africa was not merely a variant of primitivism, but an ... Read More

  • Behind the Masks of Modernism: Global and Transnational Perspectives ed.
           by Andrew Reynolds, Bonnie Roos (review)
    • Abstract: In his now-seminal book from 1974, Los hijos del limo (Children of the Mire), Mexican Nobel laureate Octavio Paz points to the disconnections between modernity in Latin America and modernity as it was felt in Europe in the mid-to-late nineteenth century. There was, he says, a “radical difference” between Europeans and Latin Americans: “when Baudelaire says that progress is a ‘grotesque idea’ or when Rimbaud denounces industry, their experiences of progress and industry are real, direct, while those of Latin Americans are derivative.”1 Ultimately, Paz calls the latter’s experience of modernity “el reino de la máscara, el imperio de la mentira” (the kingdom of the mask, the empire of the lie) (127). Paz’s ... Read More

  • Edge of Irony: Modernism in the Shadow of the Habsburg Empire by Marjorie
           Perloff (review)
    • Abstract: Our understandings of aesthetic periods along national and generic lines are often highly contingent. Anglophones may know a good deal about seventeenth-century Dutch painting, but almost nothing about eighteenth-century Dutch poetry. Italian opera looms large in the received history of nineteenth-century art music, but the nineteenth-century Italian symphony is obscure compared to contemporary orchestral music from Germany. In Edge of Irony, Marjorie Perloff claims compellingly that Anglo-American scholars of modernism may be well familiar with works of visual art and music from pre-World War I Vienna—the paintings of Gustav Klimt, the symphonies of Gustav Mahler—but are almost wholly unfamiliar with a ...

  • “Women Artists and Futurism.” Special Issue, International Yearbook of
           Futurism Studies ed. by Günter Berghaus (review)
    • Abstract: Of the many controversial slogans and apodictic assertions contained in Filippo Tommaso Marinetti’s 1909 “The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism,” few have endured as a continuous source of heated debate and polemic as has the famous call for “le mépris de la femme,” already targeted by the earliest critics of the movement. Traditionally seen as a cardinal component of an aggressive rhetoric that would find its ultimate fulfillment in fascism, the question of this “scorn for women”—along with the equally controversial exaltation of war as “the sole cleanser of the world”—contributed in no small part to keeping Futurism on the margins of modernist studies until quite recently.1 At the same time, over the last ...

  • Disaster Drawn: Visual Witness, Comics, and Documentary Form by Hillary
           Chute (review)
    • Abstract: Comics no longer needs apologists for its status as an art form. In fact, we are living in the age of the so-called graphic novel, that hotly contested term, and the comics world is now running full tilt with titles for all ages. What’s happened in the meantime is the growth of comics criticism, which is a strange thing, indeed, caught as it is between those individuals who are interested in superheroes and pop culture and the others intent on unpacking its formal complexity and semiotic uncertainty. No one needs to defend comics any longer from charges of immorality or immaturity, and in academia the field of “comics studies” is already here. The trick, however, is getting criticism sophisticated enough to ... Read More

  • Adjusted Margin: Xerography, Art, and Activism in the Late Twentieth
           Century by Kate Eichhorn (review)
    • Abstract: Utilitarian in appearance, prone to maddening paper jams, and associated with the banality of office work, Xerox machines have not evoked the nostalgia inspired by typewriters, turntables, or 35mm cameras: it is hard to imagine a Xerox machine lending ambiance to a coffee shop or its parts being repurposed for jewelry. The replacement of xerographic copiers with analogous digital machines over the last two decades has made their obsolescence all the less striking. Not only have we failed to miss them, we may have failed to even notice that they are gone. This neglected and maligned technology has found a worthy elegist in Kate Eichhorn.

  • The Pathos of Distance: Affects of the Moderns by Jean-Michel Rabaté
           (review)
    • Abstract: “Moderns” such as T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound obsessively invented critical vocabularies as a means of reflecting upon the artist’s proximity to his work and the process of its construction. Eliot, for example, famously advocated an “impersonality” that based the “progress of an artist” on the “extinction of personality”; at the same time, his call for depersonalization advanced a corresponding theory of emotion as essential to poetic form.1 In The Pathos of Distance: Affects of the Moderns, Jean-Michel Rabaté traces this tension between distance and pathos through an intoxicating swath of texts, acts, and forms: Alfred Jarry’s futuristic sexual anarchism, W. B. Yeats’s and James Joyce’s Nietzschean ... Read More

  • History of a Shiver: The Sublime Impudence of Modernism by Jed Rasula
           (review)
    • Abstract: Jed Rasula’s latest book on modernism is built on two contrasting arguments that work very nicely together—even though Rasula insists that he is trying to avoid pounding away at an argument (21). One is that modernism is inconceivable without understanding the importance of music (what he calls “melomania”), embodied in the first place by Richard Wagner, meaning specifically the role played by his concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art). The other is that modernism is, to borrow from Baudelaire, the essence of the ephemeral and contingent, the half of art whose other half is the eternal and the immutable. In other words, Rasula understands modernism as a phenomenon “with no end in sight,” the ... Read More

  • The Sky of Our Manufacture: The London Fog in British Fiction from Dickens
           to Woolf by Jesse Oak Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: Jesse Oak Taylor’s The Sky of Our Manufacture is the latest book in the University of Virginia Press series Under the Sign of Nature, which has been publishing books of ecocriticism since 1998. The series is a fine example of the attempts now being made to make ecocriticism extend its range beyond thematic reading. Ecocriticism is still awaiting the book that can do for it what Fredric Jameson’s The Political Unconscious did for Marxist literary criticism in 1981. Taylor’s is not quite that book, but it is most certainly a step in the right direction. The project it enjoins—to discover the ways that climate penetrates the deep structures or forms of literary fiction—is well-articulated, compelling, and ... Read More
