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.
