The annotated waste land with Eliot's contemporary prose by T. S Eliot ( Book )
21 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the twentieth century's most powerful - and controversial - works, The Waste Land was published in the desolate wake of the First World War. This definitive edition of T. S. Eliot's masterpiece presents a new and authoritative version of the poem along with all the essays Eliot wrote as he was composing The Waste Land (seven of them never before published in book form). The volume is enriched with period photographs and a London map of locations mentioned in the poem: the streets, banks, churches, gardens, cafes, hotels, and parks of Eliot's urban landscape."--BOOK JACKET
Revisiting the waste land by Lawrence S Rainey ( )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This groundbreaking book of literary detective work alters our understanding of T. S. Eliot's poetic masterpiece, The Waste Land. Lawrence Rainey not only resolves longstanding mysteries surrounding the composition of the poem he also overturns traditional interpretations of the poem that have prevailed for more than eighty years. He shines new light on Eliot's greatest achievement and on the poem's place in the modern canon. Far from the austere and sober monument to neoclassicism that admirers have praised, The Waste Land turns out to be something quite different: something grim and wild, unruly and intractable, violent and shocking and radically indeterminate, yet also deeply compassionate. Rainey looks at how Eliot went about writing the poem and at the sequence in which he composed the parts. Arriving at new insights into the poet's intentions, Rainey unsettles tradition-bound views of the poem and shows us that The Waste Land is even stranger and more startling than we knew
Futurism an anthology ( )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1909, F. T. Marinetti published his first incendiary manifesto of Futurism, proclaiming, "We stand on the last promontory of the centuries!" and "There, on the Earth, the earliest dawn!" Intent on delivering Italy from "its fetid cancer of professors, archaeologists, tour guides, and antiquarians," the Futurists imagined that art, architecture, literature, and music would function like a machine, transforming the world rather than merely reflecting it. But within a decade, Futurism's utopian ambitions were being wedded to Fascist politics, an alliance that would tragically scar its reputation for decades." "Published one hundred years after the founding of Futurism, this is the most complete anthology of Futurist manifestos, poems, plays, and images ever to be compiled in English, spanning from 1909 to 1944. Now, amidst another era of unprecedented technological change and cultural crisis, is a pivotal moment to reevaluate Futurism and its haunting legacy for Western civilization."--BOOK JACKET
Institutions of modernism : literary elites and public culture by Lawrence S Rainey ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a radical and revisionary account of modernism, its many contradictions, and its troubled place in our public culture. Lawrence Rainey, widely known for his contributions to the debates on modernism, looks beyond the well-examined themes and innovative forms of the movement, asking instead where modernism was produced and how it was transmitted to particular audiences. Delving into previously unexamined primary materials, the author tells new and startling stories about five major modernist figures - James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, H.D., and F. T. Marinetti - whose individual tales offer fresh perspectives on the larger story of modernism itself
Modernism : an anthology by Rainey ( Book )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Modernism: An Anthology" is the most comprehensive anthology of Anglo-American modernism ever to be published.

It is supported by helpful annotations, and an extensive bibliography. It allows readers to encounter anew the extraordinary revolution in language that transformed the aesthetics of the modern world
A poem containing history : textual studies in The cantos ( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Poem Containing History offers nine essays that examine Pound's major poem from a historical and contextual perspective, in which the work's textual development is brought to center stage. The result is a significant reconsideration not just a Pound's achievement, but of modernist poetics and its relations with history. The contributors, all major scholars, examine The Cantos from their beginnings in the late 1910s to their inconclusive ending with Pound's death in 1972. Together the essays reconstruct the many contexts in which Pound lived and wrote, and how these affected the evolution of his most important work. Several essays offer comprehensive surveys of the text's publication history, while most examine the development of particular groups of cantos that were produced in succeeding decades. Repeatedly the essays show that Pound's poem was an unstable work in process, one that readily accommodated input from a variety of agents other than Pound himself, and one that may ultimately have escaped his control altogether
