The "homemade world" Hugh Kenner describes exists alongside the world of Pound, Joyce, and Eliot. While they were laying the international foundations of literary modernism, another modernism far more specifically American was being born in the work of William Faulkner, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Kenner deals in turn with each of the six, with the American conditions that shaped them, and with the peculiarly homemade strengths that led to their achievement. "A Homemade World" is a book to stimulate thought, argument, and an altogether fresh consideration of twentieth-century writing.

Review:

"It's always an unexpected pleasure to find serious literary criticism written as if the English language still mattered, as Hugh Kenner's writing insists that it does... A Homemade World is a lively, provocative, wonderfully intelligent critical performance." -- T. R. Edwards, New York Times Book Review
