Michael North offers a subtle reading of the issues by linking aesthetic modernism with an attempt in all these writers to resolve basic contradictions in modern liberalism. Though Yeats, Eliot, and Pound certainly attempted to resolve in art problems that could not be resolved in actuality, their very attempt resulted in a politicized aesthetic, one that confessed their inability to do so. The book includes accounts of the specific political activities of the three writers, reinterpretations of their critical theories in light of their politics, and rereadings of some of their major works, including The Tower, The Waste Land, and Pisan Cantos.
