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 really enjoyed this book, as it offers Anne Morrow Lindbergh's perspective on her life and her husband's life during the tumultuous pre-WWII years. Charles Lindbergh took his family to live in England after the trial of Bruno Hauptmann for the kidnapping and murder of Charles and Anne's first son. But even after the trial, the Lindberghs were harassed and they feared for their son, Jon's, safety. In England, for the first time in their married life, they had a home of their own and privacy. They also travelled extensively and this book tells of their impressions of Hitler's Germany, among other places. To read now what Anne and Charles thought of Germany is enlightening, especially when considering Charles Lindbergh's public speeches trying to keep America out of the war. The Lindberghs moved from England to an island off the coast of France for a time and Anne's descriptions of living in such an environment with an infant and unpredictable conditions is fascinating. Anne also writes about many well-known people of the period, such as Alexis Carrel, Lady Astor, Gertrude Stein, Hitler, and others. I would highly recommend this book.

War Within and Without is not an easy book to read. It must have been an even more difficult book to publish. Lindbergh gets points for exposing herself and this period in her life to public scrutiny.

This book contains her journals and letters from the period 1939-1944. Although many things happen during this time, the focus of the book is on her husband and his involvement with the isolationist America First Committee. It is by turns painful and almost offensive to read the young Lindbergh as she attempts to defend her husband for his opposition to US war participation. She points out correctly in the introduction that they did not then have the benefit of historical hindsight. Still, it is difficult not to cringe as you read about Charles and his decision to criticize the Jews for pushing the US to enter the war. Anne herself during that period is tarnished by the charge of fascism as she publishes her book The Wave which tries to make sense of the changes in Europe.

These journals are an invaluable historical window into those conflicted pre-war years in the US. The national reluctance to act has now been almost forgotten, and it is a rare person who is willing to admit that they had taken a stance against US participation. I doubt that there are many texts like this one.

Although Lindbergh wrote many books which were not journals, her style of writing is ideally suited to the journal form. Her prose is as lovely here as it is in anything that she ever published. The descriptions of her love for Charles or the death of a beloved family dog ground the political aspect of the book and are powerful enough to bring tears to the eyes. The fact that I so often disagreed with her politically only made her more human-- and ultimately made the book more moving to read.

Highly recommended for virtually any reader interested in history, essays, or journal writing.

Format: Paperback
This book interested me primarily because I am a life-story writer - and I knew Anne Morrow Lindbergh primarily as the wife of famous aviator Charles Lindbergh. I knew she had a child kidnapped and murdered, but beyond that, I knew nothing about her.

This book opened my eyes to the beautiful woman she is - the poet, the lyrical parent, the mother-author-woman-lover-of-life that allowed us to see the private, family side of a world famous marriage.

Politically, the Lindberghs went through a lot of heat during this era, which we get to witness, front-and-center. She doesn't sugar coat things, she speaks openly and plainly.

I especially enjoyed hearing about St. Exupery - and the relationship they cultivated, and AML's love for Rainer Rilke made me love her even more, as I love him, too.

Reading this one volume makes me hungry for more of her words - and after reading this I also see her daughter, Anne published a memoir as well. I look forward to reading more.

Format: Paperback
There was probably no better and more important American friend to Hitler and the Nazis than the Lindberghs. From visiting Germany, receiving Nazi metals to painting any opposition as the mission of greedy Jews to preserve their friends and family, Lindberghs support was pervasive and critical. It is difficult to quantify how many women and children met premature death, through torture, disease, extermination, and gassing as a result of the Lindbergh's action but it is surely a lot. Trying to square the historical text, Mrs. Lindbergh is evasive and deceptive while painting herself as a honest chronicler. The deception includes the following.

1. We were not that important and there were others. Lindbergh was immensely popular and prominent, and lend that prestige to the goal of allowing Hitler to prosper.

2. This was just a political perspective As Anne notes, there were other isolationists, but no other prominent ones specifically used their anti-Semitic views to single out one group. His message in 1940 was clear, the Jews are trying to get America into the war. Obviously we know Lindbergh was a success. Not only did America not intervene, Roosevelt was so scared of being tinged with Jewish support that he refused to bomb the concentration camps allowing so many thousands to be murdered.

3. This was a valid point of view whose defects could only be seen in retrospect No Anne, many intelligent people were shocked by Hitler's brutality, and it was only people like you and your husband who lend their prestige to legitimatize these horrors. She concentration camps murder, burnings, the horrors of persecution and all they could do was voice their admiration. For those who were murdered, she is a miserable piece of garbage, though that was treated far better than the blameless women the Nazis murdered.
