Format: Paperback
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Throbbing fascism 10 May 2014
By Peng! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A horse's haunches shiver. Futurism is born in English. Lewis, like Pound, was a card carrying fascist. He views the world very politically, but these futurist fascists loved things so much you will end up stroking your phone screen. Oh, you were already doing that when the phone rang. Good English prose, masculine and disciplined. Except he piddles away in polite nineteenth century prose. Lewis developed a philosophy. More people should read Lewis, his fascism was aesthetic as well as political. His style is everywhere these days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended. 5 Feb. 2016
By Jayfred - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
He was an artist and humorist before and after WW1. Apx 1/3 of the book is about his war experience with the British Army artillery. He writes about the war in a humorous tone which i did not find entertaining.
