History of a Shiver

The Sublime Impudence of Modernism

Jed Rasula

  • Establishes the profound influence of Richard Wagner on music, literature, painting, photography, and modernism more broadly
  • Briskly covers a profusion of texts--forgotten and well-known--to provide a thickly textured understanding of modernism as a weave of contradictory artistic strands
  • Highlights key artists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including Wagner, Schöenberg, Proust, HD, Isadora Duncan, Pound, Joyce, and countless others
  • Includes access to a comprehensive companion website, featuring intellectually relevant artowrk, music, and videos
