The Tortured Life of Scofield Thayer

James Dempsey

University Press of Florida

This chapter looks at Thayer's opinion of the writers and artists of the time. He is not impressed by the work of Eliot and Pound and feels that James Joyce's early work is his best. He argues with Eliot over terms for publishing “The Waste Land” in The Dial, which leads to a falling out. He shows an astute assessment of modern art, especially of the work of Picasso, whom he thought the greatest artist of the age.

Keywords:   T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, Pablo Picasso, Marianne Moore, Charles Demuth, modern art
