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.

Editorial Reviews


Beyond Lift Every Voice and Sing is an engaging and outstandingly well-researched study. Paula Marie Seniors has unearthed material that has heretofore been thought to have been lost. The book will serve scholars and historians interested in the social and cultural history of the period, particularly theater historians, who will find new and illuminating information.” —David Krasner, associate professor of performing arts, Emerson College


“Utilizing a variety of primary and secondary sources, Paula Marie Seniors’s scholarship is in conversation with a number of debates, including modernity, masculinity, cultural performance, and race relations at the turn of the century. Her grounding of the work of J. Rosamond Johnson, James Weldon Johnson, and Bob Cole within the age of Booker T. Washington’s Black nationalism makes this book a must read for students and scholars in American cultural studies, drama and theater courses, and Black studies classes that focus on the “New Negro.” —Ula Taylor, associate professor of African American studies, University of California, Berkeley
