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

In this engaging book, Kelly Enright explores a complex relationship: as encounters with tropical forests help to shape American ideas about wilderness and conservation, those same ideas reciprocally influenced the management and exploitation of forests far outside the borders of the United States.

(Harriet Ritvo, MIT, author of Noble Cows and Hybrid Zebras: Essays on Animals and History (Virginia))

This innovative and imaginative book explores the tangled thicket of images associated with ‘the jungle’ in American culture during the first half of the twentieth century. Enright reveals how the jungle encounters of a handful of influential figures profoundly shaped America’s changing experiences and interpretations of tropical forests.

(Mark V. Barrow Jr., Virginia Tech, author of Nature’s Ghosts: Confronting Extinction from the Age of Jefferson to the Age of Ecology)
