Overview

Believing the artist should be an explosive force, Wyndham Lewis sent shock waves through England's literary establishment in 1914-1915 by publishing his revolutionary BLAST. But Lewis returned from World War 1 to a different literary scene, his former colleagues either dispersed or killed. His own iconoclastic energies remained unflagging and nine years after the War single-handedly published The Enemy, three issues of a tabloid-format rebel magazine.

In Volume 3, Wyndham Lewis produces his polemic 'The Diabolical Principle', skewering 'transition', house organ of the Paris-based English avant-garde, as a latter-day manifestation of late nineteenth century symbolism.
