Across the great divide : modernism's intermedialities, from futurism to fluxus by Chris Townsend( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's nothing pure about modernism. For all the later critical emphasis upon 'medium specificity', modernist artists in their own times revel in the exchange of motifs and tropes from one kind of art to another; they revel in staging events where different media play crucial roles alongside each other, where different media interfere with each other, to spark new and surprising experiences for their audiences. This intermediality and multi-media activity is the subject of this important collection of essays. The authoritative contributions cover the full historical span of modernism, from its emergence in the early twentieth century to its after-shocks in the 1960s. Studies include Futurism's struggle to create an art of noise for the modern age; the radical experiments with poetry; painting and ballet staged in Paris in the early 1920s; the relationship of poetry to painting in the work of a neglected Catalan artist in the 1930s; the importance of architecture to new conceptions of performance in 1960s "Happenings"; and the complex exchange between film, music and sadomasochism that characterises Andy Warhol's "Exploding Plastic Inevitable"

The withered root by Rhys Davies( Book )

13 editions published between 1927 and 2014 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Withered Root recounts the troubled life of Reuben Daniels, reared in a south Wales industrial valley, in the bosom of the Nonconformist culture. Therein lies his downfall and that of his people, for The Withered Root is as thoroughly opposed to Welsh Nonconformity as My People (Caradoc Evans), though for different reasons. Revivalist passions constitute nothing but a perverse outlet for an all too human sexuality which chapel culture has otherwise repressed. Nonconformity has withered the root of natural sexual well-being in the Welsh, and then feeds off the twisted fruits
The chosen one, and other stories by Rhys Davies( Book )

9 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Chosen One" tells of a dramastic moment of crisis in the relationship between an inarticulate young workman and the rich, ageing and possessive harridan who lives at the big house and owns his cottage. Of the other stories, two are tender and perceptive descriptions of old age, one the account of a small girls infatuation with her aunt's lover, another a subtle study of a character and relationships in a curious menage a trois, and two are tales of the revenge a lover takes on the one who miuses him
