Description - The Difficulties of Modernism by Leonard Diepeveen
This is the first work to analyze at length how difficulty has been crucial to modern literature and culture. The author argues that the simultaneous appearance of modernism and popular discussion about difficulty and unintelligibility in art and literature was not coincidental: difficulty allowed modernism to rise, and it was central to how modernism shaped the canon of twentieth century literature.
