Modernist difficulty: its evolving value and meaning

Difficulty is a key quality associated with modernist works and a key value associated with modernist theory. T. S. Eliot’s “The Metaphysical Poets” valorizes difficulty’s intellectual and mimetic value, claiming that, because civilization is various and complex, poetry should force or dislocate language into meaning. D. H. Lawrence’s “Morality and the Novel” values emotional difficulty as necessary to the journey toward newness, both in life (“A new relation … will always hurt. So life will always hurt”) and art (“to read a really new novel will always hurt”). Echoing Freud, Lawrence says there will always be “resistance” to newness.

Old English, the language of the Germanic inhabitants of England dating from the time of their settlement in the 5th century to the end of the 11th century, has three dialects: West Saxon, Kentish, and Anglian; West Saxon was the language of Alfred the Great (871-901) and therefore achieved the greatest prominence.  This panel welcomes individual paper proposals dealing with any aspect of the Old English language, its dialects, and literature, which could include but is not limited to the following:

MLA 2020: T. S. Eliot and Identity/Politics

“T. S. Eliot: Identity / Politics”

The phrase “identity politics” has become as highly charged as the phrase “politically correct”—more often deployed today as an invitation to attack or defend some group or form of affiliation. For the 2020 MLA in Seattle, the International T. S. Eliot Society will sponsor a panel that recognizes the power of the phrase and the importance of all that it points toward, but we intend to avoid the merely reactive, accusatory and defensive postures that often attend its use.
