Abstract

Marjorie Perloff's new book, Edge of Irony: Modernism in the Shadow of the Habsburg Empire, published by the University of Chicago Press in 2016, is a major study of Austro-Modernism. It provides an alternative to modernist literature. This review presents an in-depth analysis of Perloff's new book and identifies the most original and important contribution this foremost literary critic makes by pitching the ethics of irony against the modernist aesthetics of formal experimentation and the world politics of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

美国著名学者玛乔瑞·帕洛夫的新作《讽刺的边缘:奥匈帝国阴影下的现代主义》2016年由芝加哥大学出版社出版。该著以奥地利现代主义文学为案例,为我们提供了研究现代派、先锋派文学艺术的一条新路。此评论通过对帕洛夫新作的深入阅读分析,指出该著的杰出贡献在于揭示讽刺的伦理意义,及其对形式主义的现代美学和现当代世界政治的批判。
