Wyndham Lewis's Art Criticism in the "Listener", 1946-1951: Postwar British Art in its Context of Ideas, Institutions, and Practice.

Project start date:
This project is focused on the entire work of Wyndham Lewis, and pays particular attention to the ideological aspects of his thinking. At the same time it is concerned with those aspects of his work which either have not been explored by Spanish or foreign critics, or have been dealt with in equivocal or politically mediated ways. Since a great deal of Lewis's literary production remains dispersed in hard-to-find periodical publications, above all in the USA and Canada, we shall bring these materials together for study and publication. An analysis of Lewis's short stories will be carried out to assess their relevance to modernist writing and to the short-story genre in general. The Wyndham Lewis website fully describes his work, shows the advances in the study of Lewis achieved by our research, and provides scholars with a research resource that is linked to other relevant sites.
