figure frequently excluded from the modernist canon, H.G. Wells, Jackson examines
further a wartime modernism that embraced socialist and political beliefs. This
reinterpretation of modernism presents a historicised figuring out of the
politicised hopes of artists selling progressive types of cultural renewal.
Considering modernist writers' dating among politics,philosophy and
aesthetics within the context of overall struggle Jackson encourages new
cultural-historical definitions of modernism. moreover this research provides
the first shut research of cultural contributions from a number one wartime
Little journal, tracing the novel modernist debates that built in its
pages.

Example text

Forms, habits, institutions, customs, prejudices, and all the rest of it were tossed into the cauldron, and there rapidly became molten, and so have remained even to this moment . . 18 War was a liminal experience. A war of ideas The development of this revolutionary register allows us to see how Orage conceived the war as one underpinned by old and new ideas. He even believed that intellectuals were partly culpable for its outbreak, and had a clear stake in reformulating the governing ideas of the future of world society while they were in the melting pot of war.

22 Turning to France, in the face of profane German aggression, its case was perhaps the starkest. 23 He proposed that, although a popular motive among the masses, the war actually offered the country the opportunity to resolve a conflict that had deeper cultural roots than simply revenge for defeat in 1870 and the return of Alsace-Lorraine. The real war between Germany and France was one for cultural and intellectual hegemony over Europe. Orage claimed that, after the revolutions of 1848, Germany had set herself in opposition to French culture and its efforts to develop liberalism.

To begin examining these concerns, one ideal location to ground a broad understanding of cultures of modernism in Britain in the era of the Great War is the radical journal The New Age, edited at this time by A. R. Orage. Indeed, by developing the themes set out in the expansive reconceptualization of cultures of modernism above – analysis that emphasizes that revolutionary visions for escaping a decadent-seeming modernity can be viewed as an essential component of modernist milieus – a new re-reading of Orage and The New Age becomes possible.
