Reaction and the Avant-Garde, Hardback Book

Reaction and the Avant-Garde Hardback

Part of the International Library of Political Studies series


"Reaction and the Avant-Garde" illuminates a vital facet of right-wing thought in the first decades of the century, which had a powerful hold on Europe's intellectual elite.

Prominent literary figures, such as Ezra Pound, Hilaire Belloc and the Chestertons, led a revolt against liberal parliamentary democracy in Britain.

This group despised parliaments as representing and embodying a 'nation'.

Villis examines the literary works, private papers, correspondence and memoirs of the leaders of this anti-Semitic, anti-modern, anti-women's rights movement that formed the intellectual underpinning of European fascism.
