This title is a specialist study dealing with the important question of Lewis’s aggression. The eight contributors consider Lewis’s career, from its inception to his final novels, within a major focus on the First World War and the interwar period. Their chapters examine Lewis’s First World War art, his postwar politics and aesthetics, the new turn his painting and thought took in the 1930s and the connections between modernism, war and aggression. Overall, the volume offers a reassessment of the conventional view of Lewis as the uncontrolled aggressor of British modernism.
