Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter discusses masculinity. It looks at male writers, who slowly found themselves being embroiled in a “battle of the sexes”, which left marks everywhere on the virtually all-male terrain of High Modernism. It also discusses male modernists, who were determined to carve out an aesthetic man's land, and highlights the purpose and content of the book. It describes a century's worth of studies of modernism, and brings up the question of the concept of a masculinist modernism.

Keywords: masculinity; male writers; battle of the sexes; High Modernism; male modernists; modernism; masculinist modernism
