In chapter 5 of Modernism and Cultural Conflict, 1880-1922—”‘Life is not composed of watertight compartments’: the New Age’s critique of modernist literary specialization”—Ann Ardis reassesses the New Age and its status as a modernist journal by turning her attention to “the crucial distinction between the journal’s modernist style of presentation and its socialist politics, which are insistently and consistently differentiated from modernism’s by the editors.” Responding to the MJP’s own categorization of the journal as modernist, Ardis recontextualizes the New Age’s critique of modernity and places it in conversation with its politics of Guild Socialism.
