  • Black Riders: The Visible Language of Modernism By Jerome J. McGann, English literature, Yeats once noted, has all but completely shaped itself in the printing press Finding this true particularly of modernist writing, Jerome McGann demonstrates the extraordinary degree to which modernist styles are related to graphic and typographic design, to printed letters black riders on a blank page that create language for the eye He sketch English literature, Yeats once noted, has all but completely shaped itself in the printing press Finding this true particularly of modernist writing, Jerome McGann demonstrates the extraordinary degree to which modernist styles are related to graphic and typographic design, to printed letters black riders on a blank page that create language for the eye He sketches the relation of modernist writing to key developments in book design, beginning with the nineteenth century renaissance of printing, and demonstrates the continued interest of postmodern writers in the visible language of modernism McGann then offers a philosophical investigation into the relation of knowledge and truth to this kind of imaginative writing.Exploring the work of writers like William Morris, Emily Dickinson, W B Yeats, Ezra Pound, and Gertrude Stein, as well as Laura Riding and Bob Brown, he shows how each exploits the visibilities of language, often by aligning their work with older traditions of so called Adamic language McGann argues that in modernist writing, philosophical nominalism emerges as a key aesthetic point of departure Such writing thus develops a pragmatic and performative answer to Plato in the matter of poetry s relation to truth and philosophy.

    1. an interesting discussion of visual language and the effect of printing typography on literary history, but the best feature of this book is the on going critical debate McGann has with himself as if to make sure you don t unquestioningly accept his claims, a fussy reader interjects every now and then with wonderfully hostile objections


    2. I know I liked it but it s blending together with Beauty of Inflections I ll have to revisit it after this class is over.
