I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

Poet, critic and philosopher T.E.Hulme (1883-1917) contributes to, and often defines, the major debates of Modernism. Described by T.S.Eliot as the author of some of the most beautiful short poems in the English language, and as a forerunner of the
'twentieth-century mind', Hulme is one of the most versatile writers of the period. Prodigal father of 'Imagism', champion of Modernist art, and grimly humorous philosopher of human limitation, Hulme is an essential guide through the art and culture of his times.
Selected Writings includes the collected poems and fragments and the most important essays on literature, art, politics and philosophy. In his substantial critical introduction Patrick McGuinness puts Hulme's work in context and assess its place in the cultural politics of early Modernism.
