Editorial Reviews

One of the major works of seminal Modernist Lewis (1882-1957), and virtually unobtainable for some years, this critique of modern culture is notorious for its attacks on the work of Lewis's friends, James Joyce and Ezra Pound, as well as its attack on the work of Gertrude Stein. Editor Paul Edwards provides a welcomely expansive Editorial Section that assists both general readers and specialist students in a number of ways. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
