Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This excellent collection of essays provides a rich and complete panorama of the main dimensions in which modernism, as an epochal cultural phenomenon, received, extended, but also undermined the intellectual tradition of modernity. It is unusual to find the cultural legacy of a period addressed from so many angles and with such depth and insight."--Ernesto Laclau, Distinguished Professor of Humanities and Rhetorical Studies, Northwestern University
