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

Review

 

“Filled with excellent examples and lively contributor interviews, Jill Talbot’s playful and illuminating Metawritings: Toward a Theory of Nonfiction clearly delineates the key differences (and similarities) between the meta-acts of fiction and nonfiction. A fascinating anthology, front to back.”—Dinty W. Moore, author, Between Panic & Desire

 



 

“Jill Talbot has not only assembled some terrific pieces of writing, but she has also provided provocative, fascinating interviews. Talbot reads books like someone who passionately enjoys storytelling. She is unafraid of complex, layered ideas concerning the relationships among author, text, reader, and the vexing questions of veracity. I very much enjoyed this book.”—Steve Almond, author, God Bless America
