Explores the little art communities and their aesthetic products in the early twentieth century
  • Historicizes and theorizes the role and function of the little arts community as a geo-social formation
  • Comparative, place-based study of three semiperipheral (non-metropolitan) sites
  • New readings of major authors Jeffers, O'Neill, and Lawrence
  • Interdisciplinary methodology based in primary source analysis
  • Challenges a center-periphery model of modernist activity and literary-aesthetic production and instead emphasizes a network-based, collaborative model
This book is first to historicise and theorise the significance of the early twentieth-century little art colony as a uniquely modern social formation within a global network of modernist activity and production. Alongside a historical overview of the emergence of three critical sites of modernist activity - the little art colonies of Carmel, Provincetown and Taos - the book offers new critical readings of major authors associated with those places: Robinson Jeffers, Eugene O'Neill and D. H. Lawrence. Geneva M. Gano tracks the radical thought and aesthetic innovation that emerged from these villages, revealing a surprisingly dynamic circulation of persons, objects and ideas between the country and the city and producing modernisms that were cosmopolitan in character yet also site-specific.
