Leah Culligan Flack is Assistant Professor of English at Marquette University. She teaches courses in modernism, British, Irish, and Russian literature, and the western literary tradition. She is completing a book manuscript that constructs a new network of published and unpublished texts to track how and why the Homeric epics served as protean interlocutors that accommodated a dizzying range of international modernist projects, from Ezra Pound's epic "poem including history" in The Cantos and H. D.'s epic of post-World-War-II identity, Helen in Egypt, through James Joyce's and Osip Mandelstam's attacks on the censors who tried to destroy their voices. This project argues that modernist writers across Europe did not flee from their eras into an idealized classical past signified by Homer; rather, they adapted the Homeric epics to develop their unique modernist aesthetics and to address some of the most urgent sociopolitical [End Page 575] problems of their era from war, racial hatred, and empire to tyranny and censorship.
