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

Akbari writes in a taut, pleasant, and persuasive style, and while she may not convince all of her readers all of the time, her well written foray into intellectual history will be sure to please very many.

(John North)

Seeing through the Veil?marks a huge step forward in our understanding of cultural implications of medieval optical theory.

(Andrew Taylor)

A model of technical writing at its best, Seeing through the Veil reveals the unsuspected richness of medieval scientific thought for the literary critic. Akbari?s complex, subtle readings should interest anyone who cares about allegory or visuality.

(Barbara Newman)

An extensive and thought-provoking treatment on the part of Akbari of the connections between changing medieval understandings of the relationship between optics, allegory, and knowledge

(Norman Klassen)
