Structures Of The Jazz Age, Mass Culture, Progressive Education, And Racial Disclosures In American Modernism
Chip Rhodes
ISBN: 1859842003
Book Number: MB8269
Verso London 1998 Music Literature. Rhodes charts the 1920s cultural landscape populated by critical intellectuals like H L Mencken and Irving Babbitt, and by major imaginative writers like Dos Passos, Cather and Dreiser; looking beyond the mainstream, the author also considers more marginal schools of thought including progressive educational philosophy, the critique of mass culture, and the cult of primitivism, exemplified in the less canonised figures like Anzia Yezierska, Harry Leon Wilson and DuBose Heyward; he shows how these different strands were woven together in a way that helped to sustain Republican rule and an expanding economy, until the entire edifice came tumbling down in the stock market crash of 1929. 218 pages.
