Making Noise, Making News: Suffrage Print Culture and U.S. Modernism by Mary Chapman, and:... reviews 85 enough not to render hyperbolic her powerful, urgent prose. At times, her impressionistic style in these dispatches recalls the writings of her contemporary realist author-journalist Stephen Crane. At other times, her spare descriptions-- of a "crow-dark" morning and a "shapeless, huddled mass of men" who "by the cholera hovels lay still" (289)--read like modernist poetry. I look forward to assigning these war dispatches next time I teach a modernism course. As an added bonus, Lutes's edition also features reproductions of the infamous board game inspired by Bly's trip around the world as well as the "guessing match coupon" featured daily in the New York World, and every textual excerpt begins with a reproduction of the multideck headline under which it was originally published. Although published in paperback by Penguin as a handy classroom resource, Lutes's collection is significant for being the only edition of Bly's work edited by a scholar, and so it will also be valuable for researchers.

Abstract

reviews 85 enough not to render hyperbolic her powerful, urgent prose. At times, her impressionistic style in these dispatches recalls the writings of her contemporary realist author-journalist Stephen Crane. At other times, her spare descriptions-- of a "crow-dark" morning and a "shapeless, huddled mass of men" who "by the cholera hovels lay still" (289)--read like modernist poetry. I look forward to assigning these war dispatches next time I teach a modernism course. As an added bonus, Lutes's edition also features reproductions of the infamous board game inspired by Bly's trip around the world as well as the "guessing match coupon" featured daily in the New York World, and every textual excerpt begins with a reproduction of the multideck headline under which it was originally published. Although published in paperback by Penguin as a handy classroom resource, Lutes's collection is significant for being the only edition of Bly's work edited by a scholar, and so it will also be valuable for researchers.
