              Discourses of degeneration (social, political, medical) peaked in the 1890s across Europe, and posited the moral and biological decline, even sterility, of European nations. In early twentieth-century Spain, the novels of Pio Baroja and Vicente Blasco Ibanez both assimilated and ...subverted cultural myths of degeneration.

              The Modern Culture of Reginald Farrer: Landscape, Literature and Buddhism
                

              The Modern Culture of Reginald Farrer: Landscape, Literature and Buddhism (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The British plant-collector Reginald Farrer (1880-1920) became a Buddhist in Ceylon, and his published works contain lively and uninhibited critiques of British society and civilisation partly informed by this alternative perspective. He came to love Asia, spending four years in ...China, Tibet and Burma, and nine months in Japan. A moderniser in the fields of garden design and garden-writing, he made famous plant introductions, also producing novels and travel-writing, paintings and photographs. In 1917 Farrer visited the Great War's Western Front and published a book describing the emotional effect of that experience. He is very much an unknown and unsung hero of twentieth-century culture. Charlesworth explores all Farrer's activities, particularly his involvement with two strong forces within the cultural dynamics of the early twentieth century: modernism and Buddhism. Michael Charlesworth is Professor of Art History at the University of Texas at Austin.

              The place of Friedrich Hoelderlin (1770-1843) in European literature is assured, and his significance for the development of German philosophy widely acknowledged. Here the focus is more specifically upon his poetics: a body of reflections on the nature of poetry and the meaning ...of the poet's vocation.

              Carmen Laforet (Barcelona 1921 - Madrid 2004) was one of Spain's most significant writers of the post-civil war period, but a primarily historical approach to reading her work may have distorted our understanding. In this book, Wells argues that the five major novels need to be r...ead as a collective meditation on the subject of relief.
