Phobic Reading, Modernist Form, and the Figure of the Antisemite
This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to show that what is referred to as the anti-Semitic interpretation of modernist form should be regarded as integral to the history of European modernism. It examines the ways in which the anti-Semitic fantasy of a mobile, dangerous, pervasive, contagious Jewish spirit—the myth of Jewification or Judaization—shaped both the interpretation and creation of modernist form. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
