Eliot cannot help being ﬁrst and foremost “aware of a hostile and overwhelming environment” (104). Leavis praises unreservedly Ezra Pound’s “Hugh Selwyn Mauberley,” in large part because of its evocation of a view of “the modern world” shared by the critic: “the modern world of massproduction and leveling-down, a world that has destroyed the 40 Seaton traditions and is hostile, not only to the artist, but to all distinction of spirit” (141). The view of the modern world Leavis here attributes to Pound is almost identical to the one he offers as his own in the concluding paragraphs of New Bearings, a view in which modernist art, especially poetry, stands in lonely, unqualiﬁed opposition to everything “below,” especially the ideas and attitudes of those unmoved by modernist art and therefore necessarily incapable of appreciating “the ﬁner values”: For not only poetry, but literature and art in general, are becoming more specialized: the process is implicit in the process of modern civilization.
35) Whether one feels that Fyfe’s “more scientiﬁc” is exactly the right choice as a translation for philosophoteron (“more philosophical” is an obvious alternative), it is clear that Aristotle’s text carries no suggestion that there is anything particularly moral or spiritual about poetry’s ability to provide the kind of “general truths” that history cannot. It is Arnold and not Aristotle who believed that greatness in poetry is best identiﬁed by the tone of high moral seriousness that marks “the perfect poetic accent” (185).
For Read, as for other partisans of modernism, the championing of the values associated with modernist art and literature implied a condemnation of virtually every other aspect of modern life, especially all those people, the great majority, who did not share the same outlook. In Anarchy and Order, a collection of his writings defending anarchism, Read emphasized that “The same philosophy reappears in my literary criticism and in my poetry” (9). This “philosophy” conﬂated moral and aesthetic dissatisfaction with society with contempt for most of Read’s fellow citizens, both rich and poor: “I despise this foul industrial epoch – not only the plutocracy which it has raised to power, but also the industrial proletariat which it has drained from the land and proliferated in hovels of indifferent brick” (58–9).
