Giving equivalent consciousness to song, paintings, and literature, and focusing specifically at the works of Stravinsky, Picasso, and T. S.

In response either to the excesses of neoromanticism and early modernism and to the horrors of global battle I—and with respectful detachment—artists, writers, and composers tailored subject matters and kinds from the prior and attempted to imbue their very own works with the values of simplicity and order that epitomized previous classicisms.
By making a choice on components universal to all 3 arts, and thoroughly situating classicism in the broader sweep of modernist activities, Ziolkowski provides a refreshingly unique view of the cultural lifetime of the 1920s.
