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.

From the Back Cover

The York Notes Companion to Renaissance Poetry and Prose examines the best-known writers and poets of the age – Shakespeare, Milton, Spenser and Donne – alongside writers much newer to the canon, such as Mary Sidney, Anne Locke and Aemilia Lanyer. Illuminating key cultural issues in the Renaissance world including religion, exploration and gender, the Companion offers close analysis of texts, and guides students through key literary theories and debates.  Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of Renaissance literature. 


Each York Notes Companion provides:

  • Analysis  of key texts and debates  
  • Extended  commentaries for further in-depth analysis of individual texts  
  • Exploration  of historical, social and cultural contexts
  • Annotations clarifying literary terms and events in history
  • Modern  theoretical perspectives in practice  
  • Timelines  and annotated further reading
