George Steiner and post-modern dialectic as improv (Jan 1, 2015) · 4:46am Jan 2nd, 2015

Post-modernists "mean" what they say

George Steiner is a literary theorist who has had appointments at Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, and Geneva, despite not believing in literary theory. While reading his 1989 book Real Presences, I suddenly understood how post-modern thought works, and why it is self-consistent. All you have to do to understand it, it turns out, is believe that they mean what they say [1].

Literary modernism explained · 7:16pm Apr 28th, 2014

I'm trying to catch up on 150 years of literature and literary theory. Now I'm listening to the Teaching Company audio course, Literary Modernism by Jeffrey Perl. It uses a division by Frank Kermode of modernists into paleomodernists (TS Eliot, James Joyce, Marcel Proust, Ezra Pound, DH Lawrence, the late Yeats) and neomodernists (Gertrude Stein, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, Virginia Woolf).

Modernist Manifestos & WW1: We Didn't Start the Fire—Oh, Wait, we Totally Did · 10:07pm Apr 15th, 2017

(thanks to GhostOfHeraclitus for the subtitle)

Literary history is written by the winners, who in recent years have been people who don’t believe in truth, so it shouldn’t be much surprise that contains lies.  You can’t trust a literary history written after 1960; you must check the original sources.

Pretentiousness comes from modern art comes from Plato · 4:33am May 2nd, 2018

MrNumbers just posted a great essay, Annihilation -- on Pretentiousness in Media. I feel like he's saved me a blog post; I would've had to have written something similar eventually.

HITALTCAASHR, Part 1.2: Annie Dillard on modernist fiction · 2:21am May 4th, 2017

Modernist politics: Stalin and Hitler versus Hollywood · 3:58am May 1st, 2014

I just listened to Perl's lecture on modernism and politics, and also, by chance, read part of a book by F. Scott Fitzgerald called On Booze, which both cast light on the strange politics of literary modernists in the 1930s.

This post is poorly-organized, slightly cracked, and probably a waste of time. If you're not curious about the symbiosis between modernism and extremist politics, skip it.
