LALW306 Modernist Word and Image 3 cr.


Nearly 100 years on, the visual and verbal
experiments of high Modernism still have the
power to arrest our gaze and our attention. In
this course, we will explore the unique
conversation between word and image that occurs
between approximately 1910 and 1945. How do
visual artists respond to innovations in poetic
form? What does literature look like when it
aspires to be pictorial or visual? Do artists
and writers actually practice the principles laid
out in their manifestos? Questions like
these-and many others-will guide our
investigation and analysis. Texts will include
seminal writings from Futurism, Dadaism, and
Surrealism; avant-garde poetry by Apollinaire,
Pound, Stein, Williams, and others; Wyndham
Lewis’ periodical Blast; Virginia Woolf’s To the
Lighthouse and other readings that complicate the
boundaries between mediums, genres, and forms of
expression.
