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.

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.
