About the Author

Daniel Katz is Professor of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick.


Daniel Katz's American Modernism's Expatriate Scene breaks new methodological and interpretative ground in the study of American modernism. Through detailed, sophisticated readings of key writers such as Henry James, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Wyndham Lewis, Jack Spicer, John Ashbery, and James Schulyer, Katz reconceives American modernism as a tense, productive result of the many-sided 'interference' of languages and cultures in an international space. His book makes an important contribution to the study of American modernism and to recent modernist studies more generally.--Tyrus Miller, Professor of Literature, University of California at Santa Cruz
