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.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Phyllis Zimbler Miller on January 30, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first read about Grace King and her "Balcony Stories" in Christopher Benfey's "Degas in New Orleans." Benfey quotes King as writing about New Orleans balconies' secret life: "There is much of life passed on the balcony in a country where the summer unrolls in six moon-lengths, and where the nights have to come with a double endowment of vastness and splendor to compensate for the tedious, sun-parched days."

This quote caught my attention, as did Benfey's brief description of the stories -- all about women: Cajuns, Creoles, free women of color. And I had to read the stories for myself. I'm glad I did -- the stories are a window into a very specific time and place in an area of the South that seems a world of its own.
