    One thought on “Reading 1922: A Return to the Scene of the Modern”

    1. Such a compelling, eloquent, and well-organized and well-argued account of the currents connecting high modernism, mass culture, and popular fiction during not just 1922 but the modern period. North is so eloquent, and I was really excited by his writings on irony, mischief, and authority in one of the chapters on Seldes and Chaplin (the conflict between "impudence" as a negative from the point of view of would-be censors and "effrontery" as a positive from the point of view of modern artists); [...]
