By John Whittier-Ferguson

In Framing Pieces, Whittier-Ferguson recovers and explores drafts, notes, glosses, essays, and courses that top modernists, akin to James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot, and Ezra Pound generated as a way to interpret their very own paintings. those archival fabrics demonstrate a fancy photo of the way texts like Finnegan's Wake, A Room of One's Own, Three Guineas, and ABC's of Reading have been annotated and framed via their authors, and the way the authors illuminated and obscured a variety of elements of the annotations. Whittier-Ferguson additionally examines the 1st versions and periodicals during which those works seemed to express how modernist writers gauged the level in their viewers and attempted to manage their readers' encounters with their writing.

Example text

12 Joyce makes sure, in his notes on the galleys, that Gorman pronounces Lennon responsible for the "campaign which was organised by the Irish-Catholic elements in America against the proposed repeal of the ban [of Ulysses]" in the early 1930s. Ulysses suffered in America, Joyce tells Gorman, owing to Lennon's widely circulated charge that Joyce had aided England "at a time when the British Government was carrying on a war of its own against the nationalist forces in Ireland which culminated in the Easter Week rebellion" (Gorman galleys, 24; see Gorman, 257).

And before we grow completely disenchanted by Joyce's considered refusals to join public causes, we might pause to survey the ill-conceived commitments chosen by any number of artists working during the 1920s and 1930s. "40 We have not escaped from the dichotomies that Norris wants to dissolve: the artistic maintains integrity only if it is undercut by the social. 41 The subtitle of her book—The Social Unraveling of Modernism—reveals her inclination to see modernism as whole cloth that Joyce unravels.

41 The subtitle of her book—The Social Unraveling of Modernism—reveals her inclination to see modernism as whole cloth that Joyce unravels. 43 With Joyce's work, the divide between modernist and avant-garde impulses grows increasingly difficult to discern as we study the thoughtfully engaged nature of his sociopolitical indifference. I trust that my chapters on Pound and Woolf will equally confound these categories. It is worth remembering, even before we examine those authors and their work of the 1930s, that the meanings gestured to in phrases such as "modern art," "aesthetic form," "political engagement," and "the anti-aesthetic" change radically throughout the Reframing the Political 31 period we call modernist precisely because those meanings are historically constituted.
