About this title


Book by Karl, Frederick

From Library Journal:

Noted scholar and critic Karl here spreads a wide net to consider Avante-Garde, Modern, and Modernism, and discusses with flair and control these ongoing movements and the aesthetics/cultures they have given us in art, music, literature, science, dance, psychoanalysis, etc. Among the creative innovators he includes are Picasso, Joyce, Stravinsky, Baudelaire, Schoenberg, Kandinsky, Yeats, Faulkner, Woolf, Wagner, Kafka, Pollock, Conrad. Karl's broad thesis is that Modern and Modernism "are characterized by their languages." In painting he finds innovations, dynamic lines, shapes, masses; in music, fresh harmonic sequences, unusual sounds, groupings, progressions; in literature, strikingly new narrative devices. This effort to understand Modernism historically is a tour de force . Glenn O. Carey, English Dept., Eastern Kentucky Univ., Richmond
