Morrison examines the legacy of the modernist poetics of Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot, because it pertains to present theoretical orthodoxies, and lines its impression at the present drawback in post-structural literary thought. Morrison reads the politics of post-structural concept relating to the socio-cultural arguments espoused within the poetry and prose via Pound and Eliot, and divulges a continuity among that idea and excessive modernism's tendency in the direction of fascism. with no decreasing the political implications of poetry to mere sketch and with out slighting the strength and truth of literary mediation, Morrison has produced a e-book that would reshape the dialogue of the social size of modernism. He concludes with a provocative research of deconstruction and the paintings of Paul de guy, and makes a case for a brand new post-structural concept which may accommodate historical past.
