Listening in absentia: the early BBC radio dramas and modernist aesthetics. Prefaces have been traditionally studied as prime domains for authorial communication to the reader about fiction — its design, the circumstances of its composition —, as a form of captatio benevolentiae of the readership and so on.
Nevertheless, Henry James makes a different use of the preface. Arguably, the author sacrifices the accessibility and reception of his works for creativity and artistic freedom. Instead of being the locus of directives and simplification, James' prefaces become an opportunity to redefine the relation between the paratext and the text it accompanies.
The present study aims to demonstrate that James applies to the construction of the preface the same artistic vision that characterises his fiction, that is to say, the house of fiction model. It follows that James' prefaces are not designed to provide information and guidance for reading but are instead a form of exercises in style which present the same narrative structure that James adopted in his novels. In this way, combining his artistic vision with reception, the author answers the legitimate demand for intelligibility in a very peculiar way: a strategy that does not coincide with a dilution of the content, typical of the preface, but, on the contrary, with an increasing intricacy and complexity of the form.
Virginia Woolf's fashion manifesto.
The history of modernist presence in fashion magazines unveils an interesting complicity with the In the following pages I shall analyse Virginia Woolf's involvement in fashion magazines. According to Garrity, the articles that Woolf wrote for Vogue appear to have little in common because Dorothy Todd gave her free reign. I believe, however, that the selection of topics is not casual but is part of Woolf's strategy to introduce herself and her poetics to her new readers.
Indeed from a close reading of her essays it emerges that she converses with the reader about issues which can be considered as milestones of Modernism — issues, in other words, that she has repeatedly tackled in her essays and are among her main concerns as a writer: the process of reading, which " calls for the rarest qualities of imagination, insight, and judgment " , and a practice of writing based on the principle of impersonality and the depiction of ordinary experience. From this perspective her essays, on the whole, represent an art manifesto in embryo.
Such a choice is not fortuitous because not only the English writer is considered to be one of the most important Modernist authors but also the personification of elitism par excellence. It follows that Woolf's supposed elitism represents a challenging case to investigate the link between Modernism and mass culture. Virginia Woolf, the dandy and the BBC.
