Thinking fascism : sapphic modernism and fascist modernity / Erin G. Carlston

Publication | Library Call Number: PN3401 .C37 1998
Book cover

Thinking Fascism analyzes three works by women writers - Djuna Barnes's Nightwood (1936), Marguerite Yourcenar's Denier du reve (1934), and Virginia Woolf's Three Guineas (1938) - that engage, directly or indirectly, with fascist politics and ideology. Through these analyses, the author explores the conjunction between fascism and other forms of modernity, and refines the discussion about the relationship between women intellectuals and the various aesthetic and ideological practices collected under the names of modernism and facism. By demonstrating that women writers like the Sapphic Modernists and conservative or fascist male modernists often articulated very similar conceptions of these problems, this book suggests that fascism cannot be posed as the absolute other of non- or even anti-fascist politico cultural discourses in the interwar period.
