Blasphemous Modernism

The 20th-Century Word Made Flesh

Steve Pinkerton

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Theorizes how blasphemy works as a form of literary expression.
  • Studies a diverse range of modernist poets and novelists, including women writers, queer writers, and writers of color.
  • Argues that God is not "dead" for modernist writers and instead persists-somewhat perversely-by serving as a vital and potent object of profanation.
