9780748685684: Wyndham Lewis: A Critical Guide

This critical guide introduces the reader to the work of Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957), a major modernist and thought-provoking satirist who was at the centre of the avant-garde in early 20th-century London and a key figure in the development of Vorticism.

These 15 newly commissioned essays explain the complex role Lewis's work played in the formation, development, and criticism of modernism. There are chapters on Lewis and Vorticism and Avant-Gardism,War, Cultural Criticism, Satire, Race and Gender, Politics, Technology and Mass Media, and Modernism as well as individual chapters on key texts, including Tarr, The Apes of God, The Revenge for Love, The Human Age, and Self-Condemned. With an Introduction, an opening chapter on Lewis's pre-war writing and a closing chapter on his reputation and legacy, this is the most thorough survey of Lewis's work to date.
