Nathan O'Donnell

Liverpool University Press

  • This is the first book-length study of Lewis's cultural criticism

  • This book focused on Lewis's engagement with important, lasting questions about the role, status, and value of the artist
  • This book examines Lewis's interactions with periodicals - and their editors - as well with the institutions that oversaw the mid-century distribution of patronage to the arts
  • This book offers new perspectives on Lewis's relationships with his peers, on and beyond the fringes of modernism
