Uses the idea of embodiment to reconceptualize postwar literary history and recognize the political significance of literary modernism after 1945.Jason M. Baskin presents a revisionist account of the transition from modernism to postmodernism through the prism of the theme of embodiment. Drawing on phenomenology and critical theory, he shows how Ezra Pound, Elizabeth Bishop, Ralph Ellison, Raymond Williams and Theodor Adorno used ideas of the body to adapt modernism to the postwar context.Jason M. Baskin presents a revisionist account of the transition from modernism to postmodernism through the prism of the theme of embodiment. Drawing on phenomenology and critical theory, he shows how Ezra Pound, Elizabeth Bishop, Ralph Ellison, Raymond Williams and Theodor Adorno used ideas of the body to adapt modernism to the postwar context.Critics have traditionally maintained that capitalism's resurgence after the Second World War precipitated the transition from modernism to postmodernism. This revisionist account shows that modernism does not simply decline. By foregrounding phenomenological conceptions of bodily experience, Jason M. Baskin reveals modernism's ongoing vitality. Key postwar writers, critics and philosophers, including Elizabeth Bishop, Ezra Pound, Ralph Ellison and Raymond Williams, as well as Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Theodor Adorno, developed an aesthetics of embodiment that adapted modernism to a new postwar landscape. Working across differences of race, gender, national and intellectual tradition, genre and form, Baskin contends that these authors used ordinary bodily experiences, such as perception, memory and laughter, to imagine modes of common being and purpose that were otherwise unavailable in a postwar society dominated by liberal capitalism.Introduction: late modernism and the aesthetics of embodiment; 1. Elizabeth Bishop's rhythmic looking; 2. Ezra Pound's scraps of a self; 3. Ralph Ellison's invisible laughter; 4. Raymond Williams's collaboratlS.
