That time is the period between the two World Wars, and Barnes' novel unfolds in the decadent shadows of Europe's great cities, Paris, Berlin, and Vienna--a world in which the boundaries of class, religion, and sexuality are bold but surprisingly porous. The outsized characters who inhabit this world are some of the most memorable in all of fiction--there is Guido Volkbein, the Wandering Jew and son of a self-proclaimed baron; Robin Vote, the American expatriate who marries him and then engages in a series of affairs, first with Nora Flood and then with Jenny Petherbridge, driving all of her lovers to distraction with her passion for wandering alone in the night; and there is Dr. Matthew-Mighty-Grain-of-Salt-Dante-O'Connor, a transvestite and ostensible gynecologist, whose digressive speeches brim with fury, keen insights, and surprising allusions. Barnes' depiction of these characters and their relationships Nora says, "A man is another persona woman is yourself, caught as you turn in panic; on her mouth you kiss your own" has made the novel a landmark of feminist and lesbian literature. Most striking of all is Barnes' unparalleled stylistic innovation, which led T. Eliot to proclaim the book "so good a novel that only sensibilities trained on poetry can wholly appreciate it.

Introduction 1. History Lessons: On Sleepwalkers and Alcoholism: Government Corruption and the Secret of Room '29 3. Circus Animals and Trainers: Marxist Lessons and the Truth about The World 4. The 'Seductions' of Capitalism: The Fall of the League of Nations: In this entirely fresh and surprising reading, Bonnie Roos succeeds admirably in demonstrating just how carefully and cunningly wrought Barnes's novel is, and what prodigious cultural and political work it's still capable of.

Roos restores to us the Nightwood that so entranced and menaced her editor T. Eliot, and in the process, pays tribute to the novel's ungovernable energies. The World and the Politics of Peace , Bonnie Roos proposes a new critical perspective on this confounding modernist work of literature and puts Barnes in the company of other brilliant modernist writers who politicized their art.

Roos helpfully reads Nightwood as intentionally allegorical in order to contend with the ways in which Barnes reveals how we both make and forget our collective histories.

As Roos demonstrates through her deft readings of characters whom she aligns with historical figures prominent in the US and world popular presses at the time of its writing, Barnes's novel is much more than just an experimental, fragmented explosion of aesthetic pyrotechnics: Nightwood instead becomes a cautionary allegory of the twentieth century romance with capitalism which seems doomed to repeat itself in our twenty-first-century moment.
