This volume includes major works such as One-Way Song and Enemy of the Stars in very different versions as well as other writings that can now be seen as central to the formation of Lewis's work. The plays and poems crackle with concentrated, brilliant, and ferocious energy as Lewis creates a literary equivalent to the visual revolutions of Cubism and Vorticism, exploring how an artist should think and write in an oppressive world.
