Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
In Putting Modernism Together, the author argues human culture can best be understood as a growth-pattern or ramifying of artistic, intellectual, and political action. Going beyond merely explaining how the artists in these genres achieved their peculiar effects, he presents challenging new analyses of telling craft details which help students and scholars come to know more fully this bold age of aesthetic extremism.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Stacey M Jones on April 13, 2003
Format: Paperback
�All Said and Done� by Simone de Beauvoir is the final of five volumes of de Beauvoir�s autobiography, and is different from those that precede it, which basically progress on a chronological basis. This book is arranged thematically, and de Beauvoir picks up a theme or area of her life, addresses it for the 10 years that the book focuses on, 1962 to 1972. Early in the volume, she addresses books she�s read, movies, theater productions, etc. A particularly interesting chapter focuses on the deaths of some of the people she has known, including Sartre�s mother and de Beauvoir�s close friend, Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti. While these sections have interesting moments, the brief time she spends on each book, movie, or production and the shortness of the sections isn�t a very engaging read. The discussion is really a gloss, and feels a little obligatory on de Beauvoir�s part.
The book really picks up in pace and interest when de Beauvoir moves on to address the travels she�s taken in these ten years toward the end of her life (she died in 1986). She first goes through trips she made for fun, with Sartre or on her own. Then she addresses trips they took for primarily political reasons, to Egypt, to Israel, to Russia, Estonia, etc. She�s always a very engaging travel writer as she has a deep knowledge of the places she�s traveling, and, often � especially on the political trips � she and Sartre are given guides and access to things one might not be able to see on one�s own.
Toward the end of the book, she writes about her feelings about the Vietnam War, going into some detail about two tribunals that worldwide intelligentsia held to try the United States for war crimes in Vietnam, particularly for genocide (the United States was found guilty).
