The Degenerate Muse

American Nature, Modernist Poetry, and the Problem of Cultural Hygiene

Robin G. Schulze

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Counters established readings of literary modernism as a phenomenon concerned primarily with the modern city
  • Offers new readings of many important poems by Ezra Pound and Marianne Moore
  • Provides a new explanation for the rift between Harriet Monroe and Ezra Pound and recuperates Monroe from charges that she was merely out of date
