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.

About the Author

With her Berber and Muslim roots, her accomplishments as an Arab woman at the highest echelons of Western society in France and America, and her relentless output as a novelist and filmmaker, ASSIA DJEBAR speaks for the women, the poor, victims of both terrorism and the “War on Terror” that began in Algeria forty years before it arrived on US soil, and provides a much needed alternative voice to the litanies of the “experts.” Djebar won the Neustadt Prize in 1996, Germany’s Peace Prize in 2000, and in 2005 became the first Arab woman elected to the Académie Française. She is Silver Professor of Francophone Literature and Civilization at NYU. Djebar lives in Paris and New York.

Format: Paperback
Gritty and beautiful, Djebar's collection of short stories is incredible. This was my first encounter with Djebar's work, but it will not be the last. They're the sort of stories you can re-read multiple times and still be uncovering their depths. Besides standing alone as complete stories, they also reflect off of one another. Well worth the reading time and the purchase.

Format: Paperback
There are a few stories here that I didn't like. A couple were off, and just overall obtuse (but very much in that post-modern vein, so if you like that, then you'll love it). Even then, these stories were solid. But the ones that struck, really struck and stayed in my head as I chewed on what I'd read.
Tongue's Blood is borne from a bloody region, and it's fitting that the stories here aren't for the weak hearted. So beware when you read this.
For it's the last story that really sticks in my head. This piece is very thoughtful and did nothing short than amaze me. I recommend this book to anyone who dares to try it... you won't regret it!
