Reviews

"This book makes a strong case for a radical revision of current views of the philosophy of modernism and also of the relation of that philosophy to the post-phenomenological fashions of the present time. . . . I am very impressed."--Frank Kermode
"Schwartz explores several oppositions that underlie the thinking of the early modernists, and uses them as a frame for original analysis of individual essays and poems. The result is that many cliches of early literary modernism--Pound's ideogrammic method, Eliot's objective correlative--are refreshed by being placed in a larger context. One of this book's great virtues is that it uncovers the philosophical assumptions behind the new poetry without turning the poetry into philosophy."--A. Walton Litz, Times Literary Supplement
