This is the first collected edition of the writings of the poet, critic, and philosopher T. E. Hulme (1883-1917), a figure of huge importance in the formulation of modernist aesthetic and philosophical thought. This edition brings together for the first time all of Hulme's writings on poetry and language, philosophy, art, political theory, and the First World War. The volume includes thirteen works never before collected, such as Hulme's account of the 1911 Bologna Philosophical Congress, his essays critical of Bergson, his political writings, and his `War Notes'. It also restores to its original form and title Hulme's well-known `Humanism and the Religious Attitude', a piece which has until now only been generally available in a shortened and inaccurate version. The writings have been meticulously annotated and the edition is prefaced by an extensive biographical and critical introduction.

Industry Reviews

`I have read no English book published in 1995 which has struck me as so important an intellectual event as Karen Csengeri's edition...of The Collected Writings of T.E. Hulme.' Times Literary Supplement the largely chronological presentation of this new edition of Hulme's writings allows the reader to see the varioous stages in his thinking. `The chief value of her editorial labour...lies in correcting decades of casual, gentlemanly editing, and establishing for Hulme's intellectual career a chronology that modern critics have repeatedly got wrong.' Essays in Criticsim XLVI:1 `Professional philosophers of the late twentieth century must surely admire and delight in T.E. Hulme's sparky, tough, imaginative and totally un-shy intelligence...All his writing is a tonic to the mind because it is so endearingly unguarded and generative of thought, talk and liberating flights of conjecture.' British Journal of Aesthetics 36:1
