9780199937660: Vorticism: New Perspectives

The London-based avant-garde movement Vorticism, like its continental counterparts Cubism and Futurism--and its English rival Bloomsbury--was created by artists, poets, writers, and artist-writers, as a project that defied disciplinary boundaries. Vorticism: New Perspectives is the first volume to attend to the full range of the movement's innovations, providing investigations into every aspect of the Vorticists' artistic production: their avant-garde experiments in print culture, art criticism, theater, poetry, exhibition practice, manifesto writing, literature, sculpture, painting, and photography. The rich and varied essays in this volume constitute a timely and comprehensive reassessment of a key chapter in the history of modernism, and will be of interest to scholars across the full range of the humanities.

About the Author:


Mark Antliff, Professor of Art History and Visual Studies at Duke University, is the author of several books, including Inventing Bergson: Cultural Politics and the Parisian Avant-Garde and Avant-Garde Fascism: The Mobilization of Myth, Art and Culture in France, 1909-1939.

Scott W. Klein is Professor and Chair of the Department of English at Wake Forest University. He is the author of The Fictions of James Joyce and Wyndham Lewis: Monsters of Nature and Design.

Review:


"The cumulative effect of the material--which adds to previous studies in terms of its cultural, historical, and interdisciplinary range--advances a conception of Vorticism that underscores it, in the words of the editors, as a significant, if problematic version of the 'avant-garde's complex response to modernity' (3). ... Vorticism: New Perspectives indeed discloses reasons and employs rich scholarly bases for engaging Vorticism anew." --Journal of Modern Literature


"Vorticism: New Perspectives is groundbreaking. Replete with new understandings of the international phenomenon's wide-ranging avant-garde practices and impacts, it will enjoin scholars of Modernism more familiar with the innovations of Cubism, Futurism, or Bloomsbury to give much more credence to Vorticism. Thanks to this volume, we can no longer construe this multifarious movement as a 'failed revolution.'" --Mark A. Cheetham, University of Toronto


"This remarkable volume of essays has reorientated the landscape of studies in Vorticism and modernism. The field must now recognize this moment as profoundly international in its ambition and impact, visually challenging in its formal innovations, and intellectually distinctive. The editors are to be congratulated for assembling a stellar cast of scholars to produce this multi-dimensional, extraordinarily stimulating and inspiring collection." --Tom Normand, University of St. Andrews


"This fine volume amply fulfills its subtitle's promise, offering genuinely 'New Perspectives' on the essential but neglected English avant-garde movement of Vorticism. The chapters--by leading experts in modernist literary and visual culture--significantly enrich and enliven current discussions of this fascinating cultural movement; Vorticism's artworks, participants, influences and inspirations, competitors and legacies, and politics are all productively re-illuminated: an indispensable book." --Paul Peppis, University of Oregon
