About readers of Russian modernis and popular magazines, 1900 - 1910
In chapter deals with Russian poetry in 1916.
The book is about the mass and modernist poetry in 1913
Abstract: the article addresses the interrelations between Wyndham Lewis’s notion of the visual in literature and the poetics of his novel, “Tarr” (1918). Commonly accepted definition of visuality in Lewis’s literary texts as analogy between their certain poetic characteristics and the features of modern painting is supplemented by an analysis of the author’s philosophical criticism of the 1920–1930s concerning “philosophy of the eye” and “external method” in literature. Considering surface poetics in “Tarr” and its main artist-character’s representation in the view of visual philosophy allows to define the relationship between the novel as a unity and Lewis’s artistic theory as deeply problematic and one far from being an illustration.
In the article russian acmeism is considered in he context of the criticism of the 1910s
The article analyzes how modernism is represented in two Wyndham Lewis’s autobiographies, «Blasting and Bombardiering» (1937) and «Rude Assignment» (1950). The author’s reflection on modernism is considered within the context of his critical attitude towards the autobiographical in modernist novel and taking into account the changes in his autobiographical intentions from one book to the other. The article concludes that in Lewis’s far from experimental use of autobiography the latter acts as a means of definition, popularization and justification of his conception of modernism considered to be, just as his autobiographies, an act of detachment rather than exploration of subjectivity.
