Vorticism: New Perspectives

The London-based avant-garde movement Vorticism, like its continental counterparts Cubism and Futurism and its English rival Bloomsbury was created by artists, poets, writers, and artist-writers, as a project that defied disciplinary boundaries. Vorticism: New Perspectives is the first volume to attend to the full range of the movements innovations, providing investigations into every aspect of the Vorticists artistic production: their avant-garde experiments in print culture, art criticism, theater, poetry, exhibition practice, manifesto writing, literature, sculpture, painting, and photography. The rich and varied essays in this volume constitute a timely and comprehensive reassessment of a key chapter in the history of modernism, and will be of interest to scholars across the full range of the humanities.
