9780748647293: The Vogue for Russia: Modernism and the Unseen in Britain 1900-1930
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Explores the influence of Russian mystical aesthetics on British modernists. In what ways was the British fascination with Russian arts, politics and people linked to a renewed interest in mysticism? How did ideas of Russianness and 'the Russian soul' - prompted by the arrival of the Ballets Russes and the rise of revolutionary ideals - attach themselves to the existing British fashion for theosophy, vitalism and occultism? In answering these questions, this study is the first to explore the overlap between Slavophilia and mysticism between 1900 and 1930 in Britain. The main Russian characters that emerge are Fyodor Dostoevsky, Boris Anrep, Wassily Kandinsky, Pyotr Ouspensky and Sergei Eisenstein. The British modernists include Roger Fry, Virginia Woolf, Mary Butts, John Middleton Murry, Michael Sadleir and Katherine Mansfield. Draws on unpublished archive materials as well as on periodicals, exhibition catalogues, reviews, diaries, fiction and the visual arts; addresses the omission in modernist studies of the importance of Russian aesthetics and Russian discourses of the occult to British modernism; challenges the dominant Western European and transatlantic focus in modernist studies and provides an original contribution to our understanding of new global modernisms and combines literary studies with aesthetics, modernist history, the history of modern esotericism, film history, periodical studies and science studies.
