Lost Modernists & The Face

Literature & the Face: A Critical History has recently teamed up with the Lost Modernists research network to publish a volume of essays on lost modernists, faciality and literature.

With an Introduction by Tyne Daile Sumner, the volume features a range of global essays on gender, portraiture, phenomenology and faces, the ‘dead face,’ and modernist poetry. Including:

‘Look at the wretch’s face!: Considering the Face in Rashid Jahan’s ‘Woh” by Anna Learn

‘Facing War: Kati Horna’s Portraiture Experiments and the Spanish Civil War’ by Laura Hartmann-Villalta

‘Nose Perception in Modernist Writing: What’s That Between Your Eyes?’ by Ryan O’Shea

‘The Dead Face: A process of haunted recognition in May Sinclair’ by Guy Webster

And ‘Parts of a Body’s Head: Laura Riding Jackson’s Fragmentation of Face’ by Tyne Daile Sumner.

We’re thrilled to share this exciting collaboration with the Lost Modernists network and their group of dedicated scholars and editors!
