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.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on December 4, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This anthology on the anthology in Jewish Literature contains not only a rich introductory essay by editor David Stern but considerations of the anthology in Jewish Literature from Biblical times through modernity. In a sense all the greatest works of Literature, including the source and center of them all, Tannach are anthologies.

These essays contain work by many of the most important Jewish scholars working today, from James Kugel to David Roskies.

By regi weile on December 9, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Clearly written tome of scholarship with a believable bibliography and translations of Hebrew terms. An original work, opening a new understanding of what "Anthology" actually means as a tool in literature or of literature's assemblage. Suitable to the student and the layperson. Highly recommended. Stimulating in its delivery, it generates thoughtfulness and note-taking in encouraging wafts to further individual independent study.
