A Word from Our Viewers: Reflections from Early Television Audiences. Westport, Connecticut: Praeger, 2008. Print.

Tracing public and critical responses to TV from its pioneering days, this book gathers and gives context to the reactions of those who saw television's early broadcasts—from the privileged few who witnessed experimental and limited-schedule programming in the 1920s and 1930s, to those who bought TV sets and hoisted antennae in the post-World War II television boom, to still more who invested in color receivers and cable subscriptions in the 1960s.

Museums of Modernism Cover

Paul, Catherine

Poetry in the Museums of Modernism: Yeats, Pound, Stein. Ann Arbor, Michigan: The University of Michigan Press, 2002. Print.

This book explores the relationships among four modernist poets and the museums that helped shape their writing. During the early twentieth century, museums were trying to reach a wider audience, using displayed objects to teach that audience about art, culture, and ecology. And writers such as W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, and Gertrude Stein borrowed these strategies and techniques, creating new ways of negotiating culture, structuring words, and addressing readers. In Poetry in the Museums of Modernism, Catherine Paul contextualizes these writers' poetry and prose in the gallery spaces, curatorial practices, displayed objects, and exhibition objectives of the museums that inspired them, exposing the ways in which museums helped develop literary modernism.

W.B. Yeats Cover

Paul, Catherine

W.B. Yeats, A Vision: The Original 1925 Edition. Co-edited with Margaret Mills Harper. New York, New York: Scribner, 2008. Print.

Edited by Yeats scholars Catherine E. Paul and Margaret Mills Harper, the volume presents the "system" of philosophy, psychology, history, and the life of the soul that Yeats and his wife George (née Hyde Lees) received and created by means of mediumistic experiments from 1917 through the early 1920s. Yeats obsessively revised the book, and the revised 1937 version is much more widely available than its predecessor. The original 1925 version of "A Vision," poetic, unpolished, masked in fiction, and close to the excitement of the automatic writing that the Yeatses believed to be its supernatural origin, is presented here in a scholarly edition for the first time.
