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.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an amazing work of scholarship combined with a clear love for the subject. Derr and Davidson have spent years collecting, reviewing, editing, and collating all of the poetry of Eliza R. Snow, one of the most influential women in the early LDS faith. These poems give valuable insights into the issues and concerns of the early Mormon pioneers, especially from the perspective of being an LDS woman. Eliza R. Snow was a prolific poet, and her works range from grand and profound to pedestrian, but all provide a snapshot into the thoughts of this remarkable woman and the lives of the people she lived and corresponded with. Like Wilford Woodruff, Eliza R. Snow was present at most of the pivotal events of the early LDS church, and she regularly recorded her thoughts and impressions in poetry in addition to diaries, sermons, and correspondence. Introductions to each poem add additional historical insight that make this book excellent for both the casual reader, readers interested in women's lives and issues in the 19th century, and scholars, especially those interested in examining first-hand experiences of 19th century LDS women. A full biography of this amazing woman is long overdue, and this work is an important first step in that direction.

It's amazing how this woman, so endowed with the foresight of metaphorical language, provided so many samples of poetic structure with rhyme scheme and mostly iambic tetrameter and pentameter. I'm surprised that her poetry has not been accepted by the standards of American poetry, something I am certain has more to do with her religion than with her being a woman. What a travesty and tragedy to assign a certain disregard and dislike for a female because of her iconic religion!

This is an excellent book of a 19th century poet that not only provides a complete selection of her poems (some very obscure) but editorial comments fill out her life as well.

I adore how this comprehensive volume gives historical context to each and every one of Eliza Snow's poems. A jewel of a book!
