"The Ecology of Modernism explores the unexpected absence of an environmental ethic in American modernist and avant-garde poetics, given its keen concern with an environmental aesthetic, and explains why American modernism was never green. Examining the relationships of key modernist writers, poets, and musicians to nature, industrial development, and pollution, Joshua Schuster posits that the curious failure of modernist poets to develop an environmental ethnic was a deliberate choice and not an inadvertent omission"--
This is a first-rate study that moves boldly between high and low, between poetry and music, and in doing so revitalizes our sense of modernism s complexity and achievements. Brian M. Reed, author of
