Description : During the Cold War an unlikely coalition of poets, editors, and politicians converged in an attempt to discredit--if not destroy--the American modernist avant-garde. Ideologically diverse yet willing to bespeak their hatred of modern poetry through the rhetoric of anticommunism, these "anticommunist antimodernists," as Alan Filreis dubs them, joined associations such as the League for Sanity in Poetry to decry the modernist "conspiracy" against form and language. In Counter-revolution of the Word Filreis narrates the story of this movement and assesses its effect on American poetry and poetics. Although the antimodernists expressed their disapproval through ideological language, their hatred of experimental poetry was ultimately not political but aesthetic, Filreis argues. By analyzing correspondence, decoding pseudonyms, drawing new connections through the archives, and conducting interviews, Filreis shows that an informal network of antimodernists was effective in suppressing or distorting the postwar careers of many poets whose work had appeared regularly in the 1930s. Insofar as modernism had consorted with radicalism in the Red Decade, antimodernists in the 1950s worked to sever those connections, fantasized a formal and unpolitical pre-Depression High Modern moment, and assiduously sought to de-radicalize the remnant avant-garde. Filreis's analysis provides new insight into why experimental poetry has aroused such fear and alarm among American conservatives.

Description : Modernism, Ruben Darío, and the Poetics of Despair presents a detailed study of a neglected facet of Ruben Darío, and in general, of Hispanic Modernism: metaphysical and existential dimensions as preludes to Modernity. Alberto Acereda and J. Rigoberto Guevara approach the life and death issues in Darío works with special emphasis on his poetry. The authors demonstrate how the Nicaraguan poet takes the first steps towards poetic modernity. The tragic component of Darío works are examined in the light of Nineteenth Century philosophy, especially the work of Arthur Schopenhauer. Various thematic proposals are also formulated for the study of the works of Ruben Darío.

Description : "Bringing together contributions by scholars from the United States, Canada, and Europe, this work deals with the literary and artistic productions of the French Second Empire and the Third Republic along with their historical ramifications. The writers and artists whose works are analyzed here sought in highly self-conscious ways to revolutionize the traditional practices of their art, at times looking to the future for their inspiration and at times seeking it in the past. This collection attempts to elucidate this experimentation and its cultural implications." "The first set of essays, under the heading "Fins-de-siecle," examines works by Huysmans, Villiers de l'isle-Adam, Jules Verne, and Rachilde. Focusing on such matters as gender, technology and its impact on aesthetico-philosophical problems, irony, and the definition of modernism, these studies point out provocative parallels between the end of the last century and those of our own so-called postmodern times." "The second group of essays derives its unity not from the study of a single genre, but from a common interest in voice and dialogue. From an analysis of the prophetic utterances that link the texts in Flaubert's Trois contes to an examination of the connections between Baudelaire's and Gautier's writings on makeup and art, each essay here underscores the importance of dialogism and context." "The last set of essays looks at the way the past is "written" by literary historians, governments, novelists, and polemicists. Focusing on such writers as Hugo, Zola, Valles, Drumont, Mery, and Gyp, the contributors lead readers to understand some of the ways in which literary reputations and linguistic classifications, anti-Semitism, and historical events can be manufactured and manipulated." "Selected from papers presented at the fifteenth annual Colloquium in Nineteenth-Century French Studies held at the University of New Hampshire in 1989, these essays reflect not only the broad spectrum of interests that characterizes contemporary scholarly endeavor, but also the diversity of theoretical views and critical approaches that is the hallmark of late twentieth-century scholarship."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Description : Ewa Ziarek fully articulates a feminist aesthetics, focusing on the struggle for freedom in women's literary and political modernism and the devastating impact of racist violence and sexism. She examines the contradiction between women's transformative literary and political practices and the oppressive realities of racist violence and sexism, and she situates these tensions within the entrenched opposition between revolt and melancholia in studies of modernity and within the friction between material injuries and experimental aesthetic forms. Ziarek's political and aesthetic investigations concern the exclusion and destruction of women in politics and literary production and the transformation of this oppression into the inaugural possibilities of writing and action. Her study is one of the first to combine an in-depth engagement with philosophical aesthetics, especially the work of Theodor W. Adorno, with women's literary modernism, particularly the writing of Virginia Woolf and Nella Larsen, along with feminist theories on the politics of race and gender. By bringing seemingly apolitical, gender-neutral debates about modernism's experimental forms together with an analysis of violence and destroyed materialities, Ziarek challenges both the anti-aesthetic subordination of modern literature to its political uses and the appreciation of art's emancipatory potential at the expense of feminist and anti-racist political struggles.
