Sensational Modernism: Experimental Fiction and Photography in Thirties America (Cultural Studies of the United States)

by JosephB.Entin (Author)

Synopsis

Challenging the conventional wisdom that the 1930s were dominated by literary and photographic realism, this book covers experimental works by politically progressive artists. It argues that these artists drew attention to the country's most vulnerable residents by using ""aesthetic of astonishment,"" focused on graphic images of pain and injury.
