David Ellison's booklet is an research into the ancient origins and textual perform of eu literary Modernism. Ellison's examine lines the origins of Modernism to the emergence of early German Romanticism from the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, and emphasizes how the passage from Romanticism to Modernism will be within the slow transition from the elegant to the uncanny.
