I can't understand why Wyndham Lewis is so neglected, compared to other High Modernists like Pound or Ford. He ain't no Joyce, ok, but he's an excellent writer with a piercing sense of humour. B&B is above all a satirical book, a cynical tour de force which manages to make you laugh after all these years, and that's no mean accomplishment. Moreover, Lewis' style is as fresh and original as anybody may wish for. I suspect that he was somewhat ostracized due to his political ideas (he supported Nazism for several years, but then changed his mind when he realized what Nazism was really about). Maybe it's time to pardon Lewis for writing well...
