Fables of Aggression : Wyndham Lewis, the Modernist as Fascist Hardback
The novels of Wyndham Lewis have generally been associated with the work of the great modernists - Joyce, Pound, Eliot, Yeats - who were his sometime friends and collaborators.
Lewis' originality, however, is born of the fact that, unlike these writers, he was in essence a political novelist.
Fredric Jameson proposes a framework in which Lewis' explosive language practice can be grasped as a symbolic and political act.
