Introduction
1.
In some cases, this image seems to bring out a will to pathologize (or otherwise diminish), rather than celebrate. I am thinking in particular of The Moderns, whose characters range from historical caricature (of Stein and Hemingway) to anachronistically noirish triviality.

The critical revision of literary modernism has been dramatic, with feminist scholars leading the charge. See Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar massive three- volume study, No Man's Land: The Place of the Woman Writer in the Twentieth Century ( New Haven: Yale University Press, 1987- 1994); Shari Benstock, Women of the Left Bank: Paris 1900-1940 ( Austin: University of Texas Press, 1986); Gillian Hanscombe and Virginia L.

Wall, Women of the Harlem Renaissance ( Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1987); Michael North, The Dialect of Modernism: Race, Language and Twentieth Century Literature ( New York: Oxford University Press, 1994); and Wayne Koestenbaum, Double Talk: The Erotics of Male Literary Collaboration ( New York: Routledge, 1989).
