520    "In this groundbreaking study, Jonathan Greenberg locates 
       a satiric sensibility at the heart of the modern. By 
       promoting an antisentimental education, modernism denied 
       the authority of emotion to guarantee moral and literary 
       value. Instead, it fostered sophisticated, detached and 
       apparently cruel attitudes toward pain and suffering. This
       sensibility challenged the novel's humanistic tradition, 
       set ethics and aesthetics into conflict and fundamentally 
       altered the ways that we know and feel. Through lively and
       original readings of works by Evelyn Waugh, Stella Gibbons,
       Nathanael West, Djuna Barnes, Samuel Beckett and others, 
       this book analyzes a body of literature - late modernist 
       satire - that can appear by turns aloof, sadistic, 
       hilarious, ironic and poignant, but which continually 
       questions inherited modes of feeling. By recognizing the 
       centrality of satire to modernist aesthetics, Greenberg 
       offers not only a new chapter in the history of satire but
       a persuasive new idea of what made modernism modern"--
