The annotated waste land with Eliot's contemporary prose by T. S Eliot( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,190 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."--Jacket
Revisiting The waste land by Lawrence S Rainey( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book of literary detective work alters our understanding of T.S. Eliot's poetic masterpiece, The Waste Land. Rainey not only resolves long-standing mysteries surrounding the composition of the poem but 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, at the sequence in which the parts of the poem were written, and at what contemporary readers made of it. Discoveries about these aspects of the poem invite discussion of broader issues, including the relations between lyrical poetry and narrative, between modern heroism and modern degradation. Arriving at new insights into the poet's intentions, Rainey unsettles tradition-bound views of the poem and shows us the The Waste Land is even stranger and more startling than we knew."--Jacket
Institutions of modernism : literary elites and public culture by Lawrence S Rainey( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 648 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

Ezra Pound and the monument of culture : text, history, and the Malatesta cantos by Lawrence S Rainey( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poem containing history : textual studies in The cantos( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 382 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
Futurism : an anthology( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 368 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."--Jacket
The Cambridge history of literary criticism by Marshall Brown( Book )

68 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism ... provides a thorough account of the critical tradition emerging with the modernist and avant-garde writers of the early twentieth century (Eliot, Pound, Stein, Yeats), continuing with the New Critics (Richards, Empson, Burke, Winters), and feeding into the influential work of Leavis, Trilling and others who helped form the modern institutions of literary culture. The core period covered is 1910-60, but explicit connections are made with nineteenth-century traditions and there is discussion of the implications of modernism and the New Criticism for our own time, with its inherited formalism, anti-sentimentalism, and astringency of tone. The book provides a companion to the other twentieth-century volumes of The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism, and offers a systematic and stimulating coverage of the development of the key literary-critical movements, with chapters on groups and genres as well as on individual critics."--Publisher's description

The Cambridge history of literary criticism by Rafey Habib( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the nineteenth century, literary criticism first developed into an autonomous, professional discipline in the universities. This volume provides a comprehensive and authoritative study of the vast field of literary criticism between 1830 and 1914. In over thirty essays written from a broad range of perspectives, international scholars examine the growth of literary criticism as an institution, and the major critical developments in diverse national traditions and in different genres, as well as the major movements of Realism, Naturalism, Symbolism and Decadence. The History offers a detailed focus on some of the era's great critical figures, such as Sainte-Beuve, Hippolyte Taine and Matthew Arnold, and includes essays devoted to the connections of literary criticism with other disciplines in science, the arts and Biblical studies. The publication of this volume marks the completion of the monumental Cambridge History of Literary Criticism from antiquity to the present day
