Primordial Modernism

Animals, Ideas, transition (1927-1938)

Cathryn Setz

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Modernist Culture

  • Tests the concept of 'primordial' modernism as a tributary of primitivism, Jungian thought, and fraught nationalisms
  • Provides readings of Eugene Jolas's creative and critical works that place him centre-stage in modernist studies
  • Moves between unpublished archival material, reception studies, and readings of overlooked authors
  • Considers a wide range of modernist authors and artists as befitting to such a rich document
  • Touches on contemporary scientific discourse as an aspect of animal studies
