Amber Regis :: "Looking Glasses At Odd Corners"

Life-writing, literature, popular culture.

TLS, 31 August 2012

Just a quick note to announce the publication of my ‘In Brief’ review of Angels of Modernism: Religion, Culture, Aesthetics 1910-1960 (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) in this week’s Times Literary Supplement (31 August 2012).

Hobsons’s book explores a wide variety of angels as they appear in the work of modernist writers from Woolf to Wyndham Lewis. Her argument is challenging: angels are ‘native’ to a post-Victorian, post-First World War era — a seemingly secular age.

    It sounds intriguing. Very original line to take, anyway – the last concept I’d associate with modernism would be angels.

    Hobson uncovers a vast range of literal and figurative angels — it’s well worth a read! (And incredibly well written.)
