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.

I'm working with a Croatian director to find a translation of PHILOCTETES to perform in America. Since his English is good enough for commuication, but not up to poetic standards, I've had to do my research. This seems to be the most performable, direct AND poetic translation currently available. Better than Grene, even.

I only bought this because I had to have it for a class. It wasn't the most exciting read in the world. In fact, I wish I'd been assigned something else.

This book is tough to spell, let alone read.

Concerning chronic pain, this was a very interesting and intellectual read. I enjoyed being introduced to the silencing and alienation aspects of chronic pain. This book does it in a not-so-subtle way, and I think it is perfect for pre-med students or just anyone who would like to learn more about pain in the form of a play.
