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


Tracing Southern Storytelling in Black and White breaks down barriers of literary approaches to southern writers and southern writing in terms of color, gender, and storytelling techniques. Ford urges scholars and teachers to look again at what they have assumed to be solidified, to shake loose the dirt of possibility, and to allow some connections to spring forth that have otherwise been barred by artificial and limited approaches to southern writing and race. Ford puts black and white writers and their works in conversation with each other in ways that showcase blending without dissolution. The fact that the author explores these ticklish issues in an effort to gauge how features of oral storytelling saturate the narratives of African American and white southern writers who may not consciously be aware of how black, white, and blended traditions influence their creativity is the true merit of this volume.”— Trudier Harris, author of Summer Snow: Reflections from a Black Daughter of the South and The Scary Mason-Dixon Line: African American Writers and the South

“Sarah Ford’s fresh and lively manuscript makes a real contribution to our understanding of southern storytelling, particularly in its insistence on interracial narrative hybridity. By offering intriguing combinations of black and white writers, but taking a different approach toward storytelling in each chapter, Ford provides some strikingly original readings and very useful cultural configurations. She demonstrates a well-modulated and thoughtful approach to issues of gender, voice, and the construction of identity on both sides of the color line, and more importantly, across it too.”— John Lowe, author of Jump at the Sun: Zora Neale Hurston’s Cosmic  Comedy
