Remembering Wyndham Lewis (November 18, 1882-March 7, 1957)Greg Johnson
Wyndham Lewis was born on this day in 1882. A first-rate novelist, critic, and painter, he was a leading English exponent of fascist modernism. In honor of his birth, I wish to draw your attention to the following works on this website:
- Anthony Bavaria, “Wyndham Lewis’ Tarr“
- Kerry Bolton, “Wyndham Lewis” (French translation here)
- Jonathan Bowden, “Classical Modernism and the Art of the Radical Right“
- Jonathan Bowden, “Elitism, British Modernism, and Wyndham Lewis” (transcript)
- Jonathan Bowden, “Wyndham Lewis” (podcast)
- Jonathan Bowden, “Wyndham Lewis’ Tarr: An Exercise in Right-Wing Psychology” (Bulgarian translation here)
Jonathan Bowden, “Wyndham Lewis’ The Apes of God” (Bulgarian translation here)
- Jonathan Bowden, “Wyndham Lewis’ Childermass: Black Metal, without the Music“
- Adrian Davies, “Culture and ‘Engagement’: French and English Perspectives“
- Alex Kurtagić, “Some Sort of Nietzschean“
- Quintilian, “Wyndham Lewis’ Paleface: The Philosophy of the Melting-Pot“
Kerry Bolton’s essay and Bowden’s “Elitism, British Modernism, and Wyndham Lewis” are both excellent overviews of Wyndham Lewis’s life and work.
