Summary
'Blasphemous Modernism' argues that blasphemy is a signal mode of modernist literary expression. Reading a diverse range of poets (Mina Loy, Langston Hughes) and novelists (James Joyce, Djuna Barnes, Salman Rushdie), Pinkerton shows how these writers forged the literature of modernism from the idiom of blasphemy
