This comparative examine crosses a number of cultures, traditions, genres, and languages with a purpose to discover the actual value of Homer within the emergence, improvement, and advertising of modernist writing. It indicates how and why the Homeric epics served either modernist formal experimentation, together with Pound's poetics of the fragment and Joyce's sprawling epic novel, and sociopolitical reviews, together with H.D.'s analyses of the cultural origins of twentieth-century wars and Mandelstam's poetic defiance of the totalitarian Stalinist regime. The e-book counters a protracted serious culture that has recruited Homer to consolidate, champion and, extra lately, chastise an elitist, masculine modernist canon. Departing from the culture of examining those texts in isolation as mythic engagements with the Homeric epics, Leah Flack argues that ongoing dialogues with Homer helped those writers to mount their precise visions of a worldly post-war tradition that will comprise them as artists engaged on the margins of the Western literary tradition.
