The thrust of these symposium papers engaged the development of perspective in early modern England, an evolution in thought and practice that crossed disciplinary lines to be felt in the art, literature, and history of England. Individual papers explore perspectives on representation (e.g., history in fiction and fiction in history); development of frames for historical and literary narratives and their impact on point of view; implications of coordinate developments in painting and narrative, such as simultaneous introduction of fixed-point perspective and third person narrative; and the relationship between fact and fiction as they were defined in early modern England. The essays alter current perspectives on the origins of the early modern period, connecting new insights into intellectual developments to their embodiment in the art, literature, and history of the period.

Giovanni Gentile, The Philosopher of Fascism- Cultural Leadership in Fascist and Anti-Semitic Italy

An examination and determination of Giovanni Gentile's role - also concerning racism in Italy - would not be complete without considering whatever is attributable to his person but also whatever was involved in the wide cultural activities he was responsible for. Much attention has rightly been paid to Gentile as a philosopher, politician, ideologist and organizer of culture. These activities are an integral part of Gentile's historical, cultural and human profile but also essential to understand and evaluate his individual dimension.

Poetics of Loss in the Cantos of Ezra Pound: From Modernism to Fascism

This book examines how the modernist poetics exemplified in Ezra Pound’s epic poem The Cantos are unavoidably bound-in with the ideological forces underpinning his advocacy of fascism. By highlighting Pound’s reliance upon a poetics of loss, the book’s close-readings of The Cantos trace his poetic development from modernism to fascism. It starts with Pound’s assertion – from the end of The Cantos – ‘That I lost my center / fighting the world.’ To counter such a modernist sense of lost culture and ruined history, however, The Cantos relies, paradoxically, on modernist strategies of poetic fragmentation and dissociation. Because Pound’s poem thus confirms the very loss it seeks to eradicate, the book argues that his developing poetic language throughout the poem tends increasingly towards fascism. In following this development, the book provides extended analyses of sections of the poem often overlooked by critics – The China Cantos and The Adams Cantos – as well as new and challenging readings of sections of the poem, such as the The Malatesta Cantos and The Pisan Cantos – that are more familiar to readers of Pound. Overall, it argues that Pound’s reactionary urge to redefine a lost culture, coupled with his sense of the textual annihilation of a validating poetic center, is the cultural ground upon which his ideal of the fascist republic rests.
