[Msa-discuss] Modernism textbook needed

Just to echo the laments, there has to my knowledge been nothing to replace
Ellmann  and Feidelson, which is weird considering how long ago they
compiled that book and how little it anticipates any flavor of new
modernist studies.   Why don't some of you young-'uns try you hand at
revising and updating it?   You can likely leave out the
proto-existentialism stuff that then was all the rage, which would give
some room for including Mina Loy, DuBois, Stein, CLR James and more than a
few others.
