[UPDATE] MSA 17 - Modernism's Reiterations

updated: 
Thursday, March 12, 2015 - 11:32am
Modernist Studies Association

In "Tradition and the Practice of Poetry", T.S. Eliot states that "The perpetual task of poetry is to make all things new. Not necessarily to make new things." In a similar vein, in ABC of Reading, Ezra Pound famously argues that literature is "news that stays news". Years after its hey-day, how do we understand modernism's commitment to the "new"? From a contemporary standpoint, how has modernism's past been made new again? From W.B. Yeats' turning gyre, to Charlie Chaplin's persistent factory gears in Modern Times, we can gather that when it comes to modernism, "revolution" need not only mean change, but also the very cyclicality of change itself.
