Leftward Ho! V.F. Calverton and American Radicalism

Synopsis

This first biography of V.F. Calverton gives an intellectual history of the American radical movement from 1920 to 1940 and shows how he and his Modern Quarterly led the forefront in "wars" of ideas about "sex," "lit," and "party." This lively study of the career and times of Calverton examines basic questions about the relationships between literature and politics, feminist agendas, and political theory in ways that remain relevant. Abbott offers a fresh reassessment of American radicalism and the development of American bohemia and socialism through this provocative biography.
