The Fall of the League of Nations: In this entirely fresh and surprising reading, Bonnie Roos succeeds admirably in demonstrating just how carefully and cunningly wrought Barnes's novel is, and what prodigious cultural and political work it's still capable of.
Roos restores to us the Nightwood that so entranced and menaced her editor T. Eliot, and in the process, pays tribute to the novel's ungovernable energies. The World and the Politics of Peace , Bonnie Roos proposes a new critical perspective on this confounding modernist work of literature and puts Barnes in the company of other brilliant modernist writers who politicized their art. Roos helpfully reads Nightwood as intentionally allegorical in order to contend with the ways in which Barnes reveals how we both make and forget our collective histories.
As Roos demonstrates through her deft readings of characters whom she aligns with historical figures prominent in the US and world popular presses at the time of its writing, Barnes's novel is much more than just an experimental, fragmented explosion of aesthetic pyrotechnics: Nightwood instead becomes a cautionary allegory of the twentieth century romance with capitalism which seems doomed to repeat itself in our twenty-first-century moment.
Barnes thus, as Roos claims, asks her readers to fill in the silences predicated by dominant perspectives on history. By situating Nightwood in the political and social history of l'entre deux guerre , Roos has changed dramatically the critical discussion about Barnes and her intriguing novel.
