Modernism: The Lure of Heresy; From Baudelaire to Beckett and Beyond

Modernism: The Lure of Heresy; From Baudelaire to Beckett and Beyond

By Peter Gay

“A masterful work of cultural history...and it’s truly a pleasure to read.” —Mia Fineman, Slate

“A sweeping survey...offering shrewd analyses.” —William Grimes, The New York Times

“Peter Gay is perhaps our leading historian of culture and ideas.” —Tim Rutten, Los Angeles Times

Modernism explores the shocking cultural rebellion that, beginning in the late 1850's, transformed the staid worlds of art, literature, music and architecture with its relentless assault on traditional forms. In chronicling the artistic revolution, Modernism is a celebration of many of our most memorable and prominent subversives who forever changed the course of Western culture.
