Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project takes point of departure in a literary analysis of the modernistic writer, Wyndham Lewis’ novel The Apes of God (1930). The novel takes place in the 1920’s art-milieu in London. The main focus of this project is the issue of, what Lewis deems to be, false artists, aping the authentic art and literature of truly creative artists and authors. Furthermore, the style of the novel and the novel as a modernistic product will be investigated and determined as specifically modernist.
