Broadcasting Modernism

The tripartite structure of this volume responds to and elucidates the informing tensions of the radio imaginary. Part One, “Medium and Metaphor”, comprises five essays that treat the potency of radio as an idea and the importance of those ideas themselves in shaping Modernist production. Part Two, “Pressures and Intrusions”, considers wireless influence on the text in variously particular cultural contexts. By juxtaposing and historicizing the commercial American and noncommercial British models of broadcasting, these essays underscore their divergent specificities and cultural effects. Part Three, “Negotiations, Transactions, Translations”, offers individual case studies of important and influential Modernist figures ranging from Ezra Pound and James Joyce in Modernism's first wave, to Wallace Stevens and Lorine Niedecker somewhat later.

Keywords:   radio, Modernist production, wireless influence, broadcasting, James Joyce
