We needed a vocabulary to bring us out of the shadows. My choice of these particular women was the peculiar mixture of fragility and courage I sensed in them, and a willingness to share their experiences. Initially, they felt they had nothing of any consequence to say. I have lived a very ordinary life, nothing special that is worth mentioning, was their initial response, but as their stories began...

Rhythm and Race in Modernist Poetry and Science Book Description :

In the half-century between 1890 and 1950, a variety of fields and disciplines, from musicology and literary studies to biology, psychology, genetics, and eugenics, expressed a profound interest in the subject of rhythm. In this book, Michael Golston recovers much of the work done in this area and situates it in the society, politics, and culture of the Modernist period. He then filters selected Modernist poems through this archive to demonstrate that innovations in prosody, form, and subject matter are based on a largely forgotten ideology of rhythm and that beneath Modernist prosody is a science and an accompanying technology. In his analysis, Golston first examines psychological and physiological experiments that purportedly proved that races resp...
