New Deal Modernism tells a strikingly new story about the relations of literature to political agency. Szalay’s work will be a welcome provocation, both to left revisionist scholarship on cultural politics and to the historiography of . Sara Blair, University of Michigan.

New Deal Modernism brilliantly traces those consequences in a vast range of texts and issues. Szalay shows that many of the famed literary disputes of the era hinged on the need to imagine a secure and meaningful place for cultural labor, an effort that resulted in a new vision of the artist as salaried craftsman and, consequently, a new image of aesthetic work as "performance. For this striking genealogy of our contemporary aesthetic shibboleths alone, Szalay's work would be invaluable

American Literature and the Invention of the Welfare State (Post-Contemporary Interventions). Published May 1, 2001 by Duke University Press.

In New Deal Modernism Michael Szalay examines the effect that the rise of the welfare state had on American modernism during the 1930s and 1940s, and, conversely, what difference this revised modernism made to the New Deal’s famed invention of “Big Government.” Szalay situates his study within a liberal culture bent on security, a culture galvanized by its imagined need for private and public insurance. Taking up prominent exponents of social and economic security—such as Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Maynard Keynes, and John Dewey—Szalay demonstrates how the New Deal’s revision of free-market culture required rethinking the political function of aesthetics. Focusing in particular on the modernist fascination with the relation between form and audience, Szalay offers innovative accounts of Busby Berkeley, Jack London, James M. Cain, Robert Frost, Ayn Rand, Betty Smith, and Gertrude Stein, as well as extended analyses of the works of Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Richard Wright.
