Becoming Modern

by Carolyn Burke, Becoming Modern Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Becoming Modern books, The poet and visual artist Mina Loy has long had an underground reputation as an exemplary avant-gardist. Born in London of mixed Jewish and English parentage, and a much photographed beauty, she moved in the pivotal circles of international modernism—in Florence as Gertrude Stein's friend and Marinetti's lover; in New York as Marcel Duchamp's co-conspirator and Djuna Barnes's confidante; in Mexico with the greatest love, the notorious boxer-poet Arthur Cravan; in Paris with the Surrealists and Man Ray. Carolyn Burke's riveting, authoritative biography, Becoming Modern, brings this highly original and representative figure wonderfully alive, in the process giving us a new picture of modernism—and one woman's important contribution to it.

Becoming Modern

by M. Catherine Downs, Becoming Modern Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Becoming Modern books, This volume places Cather in the midst of the movement called High Modernism by asking, not what is our definition of Modernism and our canon of Modernist texts, but what was hers? The literary works most esteemed by Cather and by her critics are telling. Cather and her contemporaries thought that stories about immigrants and women, told in camera-never-blinks realist prose, would be exceedingly risky - and therefore fascinating - to readers. It is one thing to report a news story and another to use the same material in one's art - and Cather did intend that her literary works become "art" and that they achieve lasting fame. This volume details how Cather came to transform the office routine of memos and deadlines, linotypes and the business trip, into the artistry of her early stories, poems, biographies, and novels.
