Modernism based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I was instructed to read this book as a prelude to a university literature course on American Modernism. However, I came away learning very little. I do not feel as if I was truly able to distinguish between modernism, variations of modernism, and fake/not-modernist styles that just happened to be during similar periods. The book is an "introduction" in that it overwhelms the reader with countless authors, artists, composers, etc. Unless you have read or are already familiar with the artists/the work, these references will mean very little and will simply blur together. It seems like a better fit for people who already have a solid understanding of the period and the artists, and want a broader look at the movement or just a review. The writing style was also not particularly conducive to comprehension. If you're an absolute novice, I'd look for something else.
