From the Publisher
"Translating Modernism continues Ronald Berman's challenging and engaging series of investigations into the philosophical/cultural resonances of 'Great Ideas' in the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. This is a meticulous exploration of chosen themes bolstered by fruitful discussions of Walter Lippmann, H. L. Mencken, Edmund Wilson, and other early 20th century intelligentsia. This is an inspiring and valuable work."
--Kirk Curnutt, Vice President, F. Scott Fitzgerald Society
"Contains an astonishing wealth of insights into the writing of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. In this little gem, [Berman] shows how Fitzgerald and Hemingway 'translate' into their fiction certain intellectual and artistic ideas that were in the air during the early 20th century . . . . Essential."--CHOICE
"The great benefit of this book is the perceptive focus and unified explication of a specific thematic target for Berman's overall critical project, following a natural progression from his initial three books in this field, with their emphasis on social history and their application of a 'world of ideas' to Fitzgerald and Hemingway's writing . . . . The coherence and intellectual depth of its argument will make better students of us all."--The F. Scott Fitzgerald Review
