FROM Cambridge Scholars Publishing
THE POLITICS AND POETICS OF FRIENDSHIP
and Dominic Williams
decades, the study
of literary and philosophical modernism concerned solitary figures like
flâneur, the exile, and the lonely genius, but recently the group
that fostered modernist movements have emerged into view. The essays in
The Poetics and Politics of Friendship pursue
this new direction in modernist
scholarship, exploring the ways artists and intellectuals worked in
in conflict. Placing group formations, with all their promises and
the centre of our study allows the contributors – scholars from
world – to reconsider some of the best known figures of European
analyze collaborations across national boundaries, and to recover
groups in unexpected contexts like the so-called Third World.
