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

From Library Journal

This important work (first published in 1971, revised in 1977) by Russian critic Ginzburg (1902-90) presents a rigorous, historically informed alternative to outworn theories that treat literary texts as hermetically sealed units. Ginzburg traces developing ideas of personality through French and Russian documentary prose written from the 17th to the 19th centuries. She thereby clarifies the work of Russian activists and critics who embodied the transition from romanticism to realism. The last chapters deal with elements (social "conditionality," ethical value) and formal devices (direct discourse) that underpin character definition in the "sociopsychological" novel, which reached its apogee with Tolstoy. Rosengrant's magnificent translation matches Ginzburg's elegant, jargon-free prose.
